Remember that the best way to learn something is to “experience it” so please tell your “lesson” as a story that will involve the reader. You can best engage the reader by including the emotional side of the story and by using concrete language that helps a reader picture an event. Please limit the body of the story to 500 words, and then provide a recap of the lesson in a quotable phrase of 30 words or less.
