Narrative Techniques

Apr 14, 2015

Have you ever read a story of which you already knew the ending? Why can such a story still be enjoyable? Often times, how a story is told is more important that what is told. Writers use narrative technique to deliver a story. Interesting narratives make for interesting reads.

Point of view - Who tells the story?

Narration - Who is the narrator speaking to?

Speech - How do the narrator and the characters of a story speak?

Writing narrative texts is also a good way to practise using grammar you may already be familiar with. Why not incorporate tenses other than the Past Simple? Using the Past Perfect, Past Continuous and Past Perfect Continuous not only makes for a more interesting read but also, if you are in an exam situation, demonstrates to the examiner that you can use these tenses naturally and correctly.
