    • I –ANECDOTE
    • Events that happened to YOU
    When I got stuck in the house when the blizzard came, I felt like my head was going to explode. Luckily, my grandmother suggested sniffing a strong onion to clear my sinuses. For 30 minutes, I sniffed and sniffed the strong odor from the white onion. Amazingly , I began to feel less congested and was able to breathe out of my nose again!
  • 9. 4. E-ANECDOTE
    • Specific examples that happen to EVERYONE ELSE (not you)
    My Uncle is an artist and it turns out that artists don’t only use clay to sculpt. My Uncle worked on a project for the American Dairy Association where they used more than 3,500 pounds of yellow cheddar cheese at the NASCAR race to carve a 5 feet high, 12 feet long and 6 feet wide “car”.
  • 10. 5. QUOTES
    • According to an EXPERT OR AUTHORITY on the subject you are writing
    According to world-famous chef, Emeril Lagasse, “Peter Piper, the famous picker of pickled peppers, could find happiness in West Virginia. In the Mountain State, home-canned pickles are an important part of country cuisine. Green tomato pickles, mustard pickles, chow-chow pickles, carrot pickles and candied pickles are a few of the varieties that Peter Piper could pick. The best pickles I’ve ever eaten have been from West Virginia!”
