Some Principles To Guide the Writing of Good Endings

 

1. Keep in mind wha your story is really about and make sure the ending helps to show that.

2. Pay attention to the structure of the story and make sure the ending fits the arc:

    a. Has the character evolved?

    b. How has the plot developed?

3. Ensure that all loose ends are tied up.

Tips for writing narratives

 

Tips for Writing a Good Narrative

 

  1. Begin with a catchy hook…

    • Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.

    • In my gymnastics career, fear is something I deal with every day.

 

 

  1. Have a clear thesis statement. It should be the last sentence of your first paragraph. (Your first paragraph should be short!)

    • I never thought I could switch gymnastic teams.

    • I didn’t know it, but today I was going to learn an important lesson.

 

 

  1. Separate events clearly into paragraphs

    • Divide the events by chronological order

    • When you change time or thought, start a new paragraph

 

 

  1. Beware of Sentence Structure

    • Write sentences that are clear and concise.

      • Sometimes I assume I can’t do something because my mind takes over.

      • Sometimes, my feelings engulf me and I think I can’t do something.

    • Try for some “sentence variety”

      • Start your sentence with an introductory phrase and comma: When I was young, After breakfast, Gently and carefully,

    • Combine sentences that are short to avoid repeating yourself

      • I have been able to conquer most of my fears. One fear was working on a 4-inch beam.

      • I have been able to conquer most of my fears, such as working on a 4-inch beam.

 

  1. Revise for Word Choice

    • Get rid of “dead” words

    • Use sophisticated words, but KNOW what they mean

    • Double check your verbs—use vibrant ones!

    • Include some dialogue!!

 

 

  1. Have a clear conclusion

    • Restate the words from the prompt in your conclusion

      • I don’t know why I thought I could not wakeboard.

      • This is a lesson I won’t soon forget.

 

 

  1. Bring back the hook to form a circle.

    • Sometimes I should listen to my imagination

    • I don’t know why I was so frightened of changing gyms.
