Writer’s block can derail your Personal Statement before you even begin! Too often, we let ourselves feel overwhelmed by the stakes involved. We think that every word has to be perfect, and this desire for perfection paralyzes us. This is 100% the WRONG approach to take to the early stages of writing a Personal Statement. Instead, just think in terms of getting your ideas down on paper, and then go from there! Here is a brainstorming exercise designed to jumpstart your mind into thinking about stories and content… and in the process remove you from that place of perfection paralysis.
