Narrative Essay you Retell
Your topic should be a narrative essay you retell, a specific event that happened in your life. That event should be something that you can convey in a 3-4 page essay; so, if youre thinking you could write about your 5-year relationship with your mother, well, that would just be too long, yes? Instead, focus on one event with your mother, one snapshot of your relationship. Got it? Remember your audience. If you are writing a story just for you, you are considering only 50% of your audiencethe other 50% includes the people who will be reading your draft: your peers and your instructor. So, choose your topic based on something we all might like to read, and something you could discuss openly with all of us. Use descriptive techniques, evoking sights, sounds, and smells, as applicable. Incorporate dialogue into your essay. Review those essay examples included with this module and consider how dialogue helps create the setting and highlight the most important parts of the narrative.
