A narrative essay is a text used to construct and communicate a story, with characters, conflicts, and settings. Narrative writing is used in almost every piece of writing
Ultimately, whether the story is fact or fiction, narrative writing tries to relay a series of events in an emotionally engaging way.
Characters are very important in this type of writing, even if the essay is an autobiography, the person writing the essay becomes a character
There are several types of narrative essays: fiction, non-fiction, and poetry
A linear narrative presents the story in the same order as the events that happened; it can be done through any narrative perspective (first-person narration, second, third)
On the other hand, a non-linear narrative presents the story’s events out of order, usually employing flashbacks and other literary resources
A quest narrative is a story in which the protagonist works tirelessly toward a goal, which becomes the all-consuming passion of the story and makes the character
A viewpoint narrative is designed to express the points of view or subjective personal experience of the main character or other fictional characters in the story.
