·         Top tips for narrative writing....


·         Use personal experience such as something/somebody/somewhere knows as a starting point.

·         Keep the number of characters in the story to a minimum. It is better to have two well developed characters in a story, than 15 whom we only meet once!

·         Make paragraphs clear – use clear linking connectives and/or clear indents.

·         The structure of the story in linked to the paragraphs – keep it clear and simple. You may want to ‘play’ with the structure, however e.g. start the story at the end and work in flashback or begin the story in the middle of the plot – if confident!

·         Have a clear ending – if a cliff-hanger do it well, rather than just… finish…

·         Avoid haunted houses, teenage parties, rap lyrics, Lost in the Woods, starting with first person ‘I’ and switching halfway through to third person ‘He/She’, doing the same for present and past tense… UNLESS you know you can handle the above skilfully.

·         Vary sentence types – use simple, compound and complex sentences. Vary the punctuation beyond full stops and commas. Do not repeat the same vocabulary over and over and over…
