Writing a Personal
Narrative
Personal Narrative
A story about an
experience in your
own life.
It is not fictional, and it
is not an autobiography
(a story about your
entire life)!
Point of View
Personal narratives
use first person
point of view. “I”,
“me”, and “we” are
OK. Generally, the
narrator should not
address the reader
by saying “you” in
your narrative.
“I”
Point of View:
1st Person:
“I never thought that
owning a dog would be
so challenging. When I
brought Fluffy home for
the first time, she
destroyed my favorite
pair of shoes within five
minutes. After I found
the damage, I locked
Fluffy in her crate.”
3rd Person:
“Amber used to think that
owning a dog would be
easy, but when she
brought Fluffy home for
the first time, she
discovered she was
wrong. Fluffy had
destroyed her favorite pair
of shoes. When amber
saw them, she locked
Fluffy in her crate.”
Narrative Elements
There are 5 main elements that are
found in all narratives:
1. Character
2. Setting
3. Conflict
4. Plot
5. Theme
These are
the main
“ingredients”
in a story.

Where does your story
take place?
What are you struggling to do

What events happen?
That’s you!
What is the lesson, purpose,
point, or message of the story?

  • 13. Man vs. Nature You are attacked by bears while on a camping trip, and struggle to escape. Your family struggles to survive during a hurricane. A drought kills all of the crops, and you must try to survive without food.
  • 14. Man vs. Society You struggle to find acceptance in a society that discourages your clothing choices. You struggle to change a harmful or oppressive law. You struggle because everyone expects you to attend Hagwon, but you would rather take surfing lessons.
