Definition and details of a narrative essay:

– The narrative essay tells a story. It can also be called a “short story.” Generally the narrative essay is conversational in style, and tells of a personal experience. It is most commonly written in the first person (uses I).

– The story, as many texts, should have an introduction and also a conclusion which makes a point.

– You can write anecdotes which are always good in essays of this kind. Note that in a narrative essay you should give loads of details about the characters, the events, places etc.

– As we said before use first person, the use of “I” makes us believe that everything is much more intimate.

– Be organized, use details but do not exaggerate. Once you have finished revise all the words and check if you can use synonyms in order to not repeating words.
