    Question about a Narrative essay

    Hello,
    I am suppose to write a 5 paragraph narrative essay and I have a question. Can I write a narrative about how college has changed my life? I know a narrative is about story telling, but I am not sure how to go about each paragraph being apart of a story. I know the points I want to make, for example, maturity, confidence, and intellectual capabilities, but how do I combind them to tell a story?

    Re: Question about a Narrative essay

    If it's a narrative, then those points are not really stages- you would need to describe events that resulted in the changes, but taking the events as the central focus- which event[s] led to an increase in your confidence, for instance? Describe this then add the changes rather than focusing on the internal changes in character.
