Writing Reflection

For this assignment, I chose to write about my cat, Lexie.  Writing this piece was  fairly difficult for me.  There were two things that I found particularly challenging:

  1. Telling the story from the third person — Writing about Lexie felt very personal to me, so I had a hard time taking myself out of the story. 
  2. Straddling the fine line between expository and creative writing — Since I couldn’t interview my cat, there were times when I felt like I was writing too creatively for the story to be considered an expository piece. 

It would have been easier to write about an inanimate object, something that I have no emotional connection to, and/or something without a personality.  In the end though, I’m quite happy with the way the story turned out.
