Narratives follow a storyline, so they must:

Have a clear introductory paragraph that sets the story

  • Where?
  • Why?
  • Who was involved?

Develop action in the middle paragraph

  • How did it all start?
  • What was the sequence of events?
  • How did it all end?

End clearly and coherently

  • What are the consequences of these facts?
  • How do the involved people feel about it?
  • How do you feel about it?
