Write Your Own Obituary

For this assignment, please write your own obituary. You should combine both true events that have already been an important part of your life and imagined events that you anticipate being a part of your future life.

For ideas on what kinds of information you can include in your obituary, please find examples at the following website: http://www.rememberingyou.biz/obituaries.html .

Your obituary should be 300-500 words long.

Please use Arial font for the parts of your obituary that are imagined. The true parts of your obituary should be in Times New Roman font. All fonts should be size 12, according to MLA guidelines.

The focus of grading for this assignment will be on how well you follow MLA formatting guidelines. For a reminder on MLA formatting, please see the following website: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ .

Due Friday, Aug. 26
