Writing skills: How to write a narrative essay

A story conveys its message via the development of action. It has an opening, development, climax, and resolution. Whether funny or sad, a good story usually follows this pattern.

So, first of all, decide on the topic. A narrative essay usually deals with personal experiences, so select a story from your life that is concise and has some interesting aspects. Determine what was the beginning, development, what was the most dramatic point to you (and why) and how it all resolved. What lessons have you learned?  These personal conclusions and feelings are gems of good stories.

Decide on the characters. A really good narrative essay is short, so characters should be few but vivid. The same refers to the number of events. Select the most important ones that reflect the core of what you want to say.

Make a kind of draft. List characters, events, and the most important details that you want to include.
