Narrative Essay Topics

In comparison to many other writing assignments that you may be asked to complete in your high school or college, narrative essay is the one that gives you an opportunity to write about yourself and your own experience. The main characteristic that distinguishes this kind of essay from the others is that you don't need to convince anybody in your rightness or provide strong argumentation by means of facts, evidences and examples. All you need is to tell your story and provoke your potential reader's interest to it. Here, we will give you a piece of advice in this regard and possible narrative essay topics that you may find fascinating.

Before actually choosing a specific topic for your essay keep in mind that you are welcome to tell a story about your own experience, as well as about some fantastic situation that just came to your mind. These topics are meant to give you an idea in the first place, although you are welcome to pick one of them and develop exactly the chosen topic from the list. Look at some possible topics, that may inspire you for writing a good story.

  • The biggest misunderstanding you have ever had. This may be whatever you want it to be: misunderstanding between you and some of your relatives, your friends, professor, etc. However, you may write about somebody else's experience with a big misunderstanding.
  • The day you decided to change your life. Did such day ever happen? Or maybe you only dream of a day, when you decided to change your life? It doesn't matter, since all you need is to write about this day or make up a story about it.
  • The hour of your life that you would like to live once again. Think about something significant that happened to you within an hour (or a minute, ten minutes, etc.) that was so wonderful that you want to repeat the feelings you had at that time.
  • Imagine that you found yourself in a mysterious house where you had never been before. What does it look like? Is it scary or inviting? Remember that you are absolutely welcome to set your imagination free and make up a fantastic story.
  • Imagine that you have all the money in the world. What would you do with that money? Would you donate or engage yourself in charity? Or maybe, you would like to live just for your own pleasure, buy an island and spend your life in a sweet idleness?
  • Tell about something that disappeared from your life. It may be anything you want, starting from a personal diary and finishing with a person that just disappeared from your life.
  • Write a story about the most exciting trip you have ever had (or wish to have). Remember giving all the interesting details and make your reader feel like he is a part of your trip.
  • Write about the most awful, terrible, unbelievably bad day in your life. You can name the story like «the journey to the hell», if it was really that bad. Remember that you may brighten your story up so it could be more exciting.
  • These are some narrative essay topics that we hope will inspire you. You should know that not the title makes your story good, but the content. However, a good title is important for provoking your audience's interest. When your topic is chosen and you are ready to proceed to writing, try to follow the next tips.

Your essay is going to consist of such main elements: the beginning (where you provide your reader with general information regarding the topic, so he could know what to expect); the plot (the main part, where you actually tell your story); the characters (who plays role in your story?), the culmination (the most exciting part of your story); and, the ending (you may write a conclusion or the moral, although it is not essential). The elements of a narrative essay help to distinguish it from all the other types of essay and you can find them in a good narrative essay example. Since the main part of your story is the plot, you need to know about its characteristics:

  • It needs to be told in a chronological order. You cannot start with the ending and finish with the beginning: develop your story step by step, chronologically.
  • Purpose is important. It is not necessary to explain the readers exactly why you tell them that or another story. It only needs to be a few words in the opening sentence.
  • You may include a dialogue. It is not an essential part, you can use it if you think your story will benefit from it.
  • Give details. Your story needs to have interesting details to keep the reader's attention on it. All of them need to be related somehow to the story that you are telling. However, don't provide too many details, because they will make your story boring.

In order to make success of your narrative essay, you need to combine all the above-mentioned elements and characteristics. The length of your story depends on the requirements and instructions of the assignment. As a rule, you are free to make it as long as you want it to be. Remember that the purpose of your story is to actually tell it, not to convince your reader that you are right. You may just share your opinion, experience, your response to something, etc. without expecting that everybody will understand you and take your side. Anyway, we are always ready to help you. Please use our well-written narrative essay example so you could learn precisely what your story needs to look like. Having said that, we are also glad to inform you that we provide students with a lot of other services that you may find helpful.
