Some kids struggle when it comes to writing and some kids thrive. But how do you write an interesting narrative still following the basic plan of, title, orientation, complication, sequence of events, and resolution? Well if you choose to continue reading you’ll find out!
So, usually you have one paragraph for each section and three for the sequence of events, but that gets boring after a while! But to fix this, all you need to do is include more paragraphs for your orientation and make sure you don’t have one problem but instead have, but they couldn’t free the bearded man from the trap until they had the map. So they went off exploring, trying to find the map when… Pete fell in a hole on an old, rickety bridge over a volcano! In the first sentence, you’ll see how part of it is written in green. This is because that section is the main problem. The bit that is written in pink is a small problem to make the story more intense. By adding, small, extra problems your narratives will become excellent!
Now, to make your writing even better, you’ll need to get interesting words to describe the scenes. This means, not repeating words, not being simple and saying for example, he jumped across the lake, instead say, he leaped across the lake while the dinosaur chased him around the island, write in the comments which one you would prefer but my opinion is the second option. So if I was writing a story and I said, Pete was very scared of the dinosaur so he hid behind a tree. Then the dinosaur went past him so he went on walking and then he saw a massive dragon fly and was scared, you would be bored wouldn’t you, but if I wrote, Pete was petrified of the dinosaur so he ran as fast as he could to get behind a tree to hide. The dinosaur couldn’t find him so he trod past. Pete then started exploring again and then… he got scooped up by a massive dragon fly! He was excited and scared at the same time and didn’t know what to do, I would love that story and I think you would too. So make sure you don’t repeat words and use interesting words instead.
Adjectives and adverbs help a story. They describe either the verb (which adverbs do) or the noun (which adjectives do). They make a story interesting , make it even more understandable and paint a picture in the readers mind to help them understand what is going on.
That is the end of this article and please comment ideas for me so I can keep writing. I am good at being brain dead for ideas. Hope this helped you. P.S I have used colour to make it more interesting. Hehehe. Toodles! (=
