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.
