To write a personal narrative, follow the steps below:

Think about an experience that happened to you or someone you know that you think others would be interested in.

Choose an experience you want to write about. Think about what you saw, heard and felt. Use an idea organizer to help sort out your thoughts.

As you write, use “I” throughout your story. Most narratives are told using the first-person point of view.

Write an introduction that gets your reader’s attention and tells him or her what your story will be about.

Write about the events in the order in which they happened. What happened first, second, third?

Be sure to add sensory details, such as how something tasted or what something looked like. This will help your reader feel like he or she was there, too. Draw the reader into the experience.

Write a conclusion that ends your story. Tell the reader why this experience was important to you and what you learned from it.

Once you have finished your personal narrative, be sure to review your work.
