    As a mode of expository writing, the narrative approach, more than any other, offers writers a chance to think and write about themselves. We all have experiences lodged in our memories, which are worthy of sharing with readers. Yet sometimes they are so fused with other memories that a lot of the time spent in writing narrative is in the prewriting stage.

    When you write a narrative essay, you are telling a story. Narrative essays are told from a defined point of view, often the author''''''''''''''''s, so there is feeling as well as specific and often sensory details provided to get the reader involved in the elements and sequence of the story. The verbs are vivid and precise. The narrative essay makes a point and that point is often defined in the opening sentence, but can also be found as the last sentence in the opening paragraph.

    Writing a Narrative composition appeals to one of humankind''''s basic instincts, the impulse to share stories. Sometimes the aim of the story-teller is simply to entertain, to provide a moment of escape from the business of the day or the horrors of the night, but sometimes the aim of the story-teller is to instruct, to help others in their understanding of something. The best part of teaching in this way is that our listeners'''' natural resistance to heeding the words of others is low and they are not always aware that they are being taught anything until it''''s too late – we''''ve got them.

    The skills needed to narrate a story well are not entirely the same as the skills needed to write a good essay. Some wonderful short fiction writers are not particularly good essayists and vice versa. Still, it is useful to look at those elements that make up a good narrative and know how to apply what we learn toward making our essays as dramatic as possible whenever that is appropriate.

    A personal narrative is a story that is personal, so the ideas must come from you, and you must write in the first person (I/my/me). To begin, do some prewriting. I suggest you choose a family member because you need to include some conversation and dialogue. Example Aunt Ida. For ten minutes write without stopping or picking up your pen about this one person -anything that comes to your mind. Then see if you have any good ideas. Now, what is your point about Ida? You must have a purpose to write. Example: My Aunt Ida is crazy. My sister is funny. Now list several times she acted crazy or your sister was funny. Pick the best two or three. Example: Aunt Ida thinks she has been kidnapped by aliens, or my Aunt Ida mumbles, or my sister likes to wear fuzzy slippers wherever she goes (even on dates or the mall), etc. Begin with your thesis and a little background information for your introduction. Now, you have to write a "little story" within a story called an anecdote. I suggest two of them. You use what are known as narrative cues (Last Thursday, yesterday, last summer, the day I graduated from high school, etc.) and sensory details (think of your four senses) as well as dialogue. For example: Last summer, (narrative cue) my Aunt Ida told me she had been kidnapped as a little girl by aliens. I was in her kitchen, (narrative cue) and she was pouring me some orange, mint tea that smelled like heaven sprinkled with oranges (sensory details) when she told me. Her red hair looked like a bunch of fireworks had just gone off ( sensory details), and she said, " When I was six.."

    A narrative is simply the retelling of a story. It is usually someone reflecting on an event in their life. Many people say that narratives shape history because they give the series of events and tell the story of what happened at a particular time. You might think of a person as influential mainly due to the narratives you have read about them. It shows you how a person looks at the world. Here is a short Agence France Presse (AFP) dispatch containing five sentences of narrative text about an attempt of assassination against Martin Luther King: " I was dedicating specimens of my book " Stride toward Freedom ", which reports the boycotting of the buses of Montgomery in 1955-56. Suddenly, while I affixed my signature on a page, I felt something sharp being inserted brutally in my chest. I had been just stabbed with a cut paper, by a woman who was to be recognized insane thereafter. One urgently transported me to the hospital of Harlem where I remained long hours on a bed while one made thousand preparations to extract the weapon from my body ". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Interesting_Narrative_of_the_Life_of_Olaudah_Equiano Some are about God: http://students.depaul.edu/~dcwik1/Daniel%20Cwik/Writing/Narratives.html http://students.depaul.edu/~dcwik1/Daniel%20Cwik/Writing/Waterfall.html Today is Friday, October 2, 2009 Watching a Waterfall Every time I was home from college, I would watch this waterfall in a forest near my home. A lake empties into a creek named Salt Creek. There is a bridge that runs all across the waterfall. Water falls eight feet over a gray wall built of two-by-four inch bricks. There are four sections where the water goes down; they are divided each by a post that appears rectangular from the front and triangular from the side. Water splashes onto a flat cement surface. Then, the creek merges into the center and goes down a strait. On each side of the strait, there is a wall of rocks cemented together. Also, there is a hill of trees on both sides of the creek. I walk across the bridge and go down the east side of the waterfall. And, I go slow and stop various times on the wall of the strait, so I can take time to watch the waterfall. I would look at how the water goes down over each section of the back wall and where the water falls from platform to the creek. The beauty of the water splashing onto the cement captures me; looking at the water, again I find hope that I can accomplish my dreams. When I was in high school, I would wait for days when there was rain coming down fast as bullets being shot out of an M-16. The water would cover all four sections of the back wall completely and make two-feet high splashes onto the cement. At this point, the waterfall would be at the highest point of its beauty. I take a look at the water falling over the wall, the green leaves of the trees and the light blue sky above. This image reminds me that if God can create things such as this gorgeous waterfall, He has the strength to help me accomplish my dreams. That discovery started a journey of finding hope whenever I would visit waterfalls. http://students.depaul.edu/~dcwik1/Daniel%20Cwik/Writing/OverComingDepression.html Overcoming my Depression Through Finding Forgiveness In high school, I felt deserted from the world. My life seemed meaningless because I was not popular and had a poor academic record. This belief brought a great depression where I embarked on a journey to search for truth, love and purpose. There was a relentless drive for me to become perfect in every area of my life; this drive would cause me to feel shameful about my mistakes. There were some major disappointments: I received Bs and Cs that prevented me from getting a 4.0 G.P.A., my father was an alcoholic, and he verbally abused my family. The first three years of high school, I spend days feeling depressed and lonely due to having no close friends. Writing poems and a book about these emotions gave me a catharsis. There were days that I wanted to kill myself, but I never had the guts to do it. I hated the students because they were not like me, and was jealous of their popularity. However, in my senior year, some students realized that I was sad. They talked to me and became my friends. I was discovering how much a valuable person I was to them. As a result, I started to care about them. Surprisingly, a sweet girl told me in my yearbook that she felt “very special” when I offered my friendship to her. My friends asked me how I was doing. I would say fine. But, I lied because I did not want to tell anyone about my depression. The action of hiding my problems from others prevented me from being close to anyone. I was scared that they would abandon and hate me. Later, I started opening up my heart to others. The summer after graduation, I dated a very caring girl who wanted to know what was bothering me. For the first time, I started to open up about my emotions by talking to
