Generate Ideas A good narrative includes details about what happened and how the writer felt about it. These details help the readers understand and visualize the writer’s experience. Ask your self these questions to help plan your own narrative: who, what, where when, and why.
An example… Who is Naomi? What was different about Naomi? When did I meet Naomi? Where did I meet Naomi? Why did Naomiand I become best friends?
Organizing Ideas Before writing a personal narrative, you have to organize your ideas. Remember: your story needs to have a beginning, middle, and end.
For example… Beginning: I met Naomi on the first day of school when she walked into our classroom. Middle: The first thing I noticed about Naomi was how wild her hair seemed and how different her clothes were from my own. I went over to her house one day after school and she showed me how to decorate my clothes so I could look like her. Now, we do fun things together all the time. End: I am so glad Naomi came to our class and we became friends.
