Hi, I am back, under the influence of some afternoon margaritas (please refer to the thread started by ncprasad - my essays are like biriyani. You will understand why the margaritas)
Ok. I have been reading a lot of business school essay books to get ideas of how to draft essays that do not sound bad, and can evoke something more than a yawn from the ad com officer. Each of these books says - make your essay sound like a story.
I have been browsing the library, and picking up stravel books, fiction, thrillers and reading them to get some good ideas on how a good story should sound like . I am a bibliophile and I possibly have more books than Imelda Marcos has shoes - thats besides the point.
Do you guys have some recommendations on some fiction books whose ideas you can use to create a good story backdrop?
For example - I am reading the book "Bangkok Haunts", by John Burdett. Its an awesome book, a crime thriller set in SE Asia. Havent figured out how I can link that with any of my essays.
Does this post sound to confusing?? I bet so. Blame it on the margaritas
