HOW TO WRITE A NARRATIVE ESSAY
  • created by Essay-Academy.com

2
  • This type of essay is frequently assigned in
    school.
  • It requires telling a personal story that has
    some meaning to the author.
  • Usually narrative essays describe topics that
    have connection with class themes.
  • Lets learn how to select a topic and write a
    good narrative essay.

3
STEP 1. SELECT A STORY THAT DESCRIBES SOME THEME
OR TOPIC.
  • There are two main elements of a narrative
    essay a story and following analysis of it. This
    is why your topic should describe a certain issue
    or theme.
  • By using your personal experience, you describe
    your idea and the main point. In most cases,
    students do not require to conduct a research in
    order to write a narrative essay.

STEP 2. MAKE SURE YOUR TOPIC FITS THE THEME.
  • Students receive prompts from their school
    teachers.
  • They need to create their topics based on the
    prompts and ensure they fit the assignment.
  • You should always read your prompt very
    carefully to understand the task.

5
STEP 2. MAKE SURE YOUR TOPIC FITS THE THEME.
  • Otherwise your story about how you managed to
    escape from a desert island is not going to be
    good. The most common themes for narrative essays
    include
  • How you managed to overcome adversity
  • How your priorities in life have changed
  • The most interesting experience you have had

6
STEP 3. MAKE AN OUTLINE.
  • Think about the story you want to tell and try
    to recall all important details it might have.
  • Define when the story starts and ends.
  • Make your story as particular as possible.

7
STEP 3. MAKE AN OUTLINE.
  • This means you should not write about your
    school year and take the first day in class as
    the starting point.
  • For example, go straight to the drama and
    describe what failure you had.

8
STEP 4. BE CONSISTENT.
  • It is important to remember that the use of I
    is not just justified but required.
  • Do not switch between different points of view
    in your story.
  • There has to be only one writer and this is you.

9
STEP 4. BE CONSISTENT.
  • Besides, make sure you tell your narrative in
    past tense.
  • For example, you should not write Larry and I
    visited the theater every Sunday, just like we do
    every week.
  • Instead you should write Larry and I visited
    the theater every Sunday.

10
STEP 5. DESCRIBE CHARACTERS AND SETTING.
  • The most important character in the story is
    you.
  • But you have to describe who else was there with
    you.
  • Descriptions of people might include their
    physical appearance, clothes and other
    attributes.
  • Try to make a sentence describing each
    character.

11
STEP 5. DESCRIBE CHARACTERS AND SETTING.
  • The setting is as important as the characters in
    a narrative essay.
  • You have to describe where the action took
    place in a home, in the streets and sometimes
    even the town or country.

12
STEP 5. DESCRIBE CHARACTERS AND SETTING.
  • Try to recall as many details about the place as
    you can.
  • It is a very important part of your story so you
    might even include some extra details about it.

13
STEP 5. USE VIVID DETAILS.
  • Describing details is essential in writing.
  • Even boring classroom can be made interesting if
    the writer finds some unique elements and uses
    right kinds of details.
  • One of the things that propel your story is your
    details.
