Write and submit an outline for your narrative event paper, the assignment for which appears below. See LB Brief and St Martin’s Guide for examples of outlines.
Write a 1000 word narrative “event” paper that describes and analyzes an event in your life. The story needs to include setting, character, conflict, rising action, climax, and resolution. Be sure to use the model stories in the text as good examples in writing your own. You may write about one of the following topics, or one of your own:
The funniest/scariest/saddest thing that has ever happened to you.
A single event or decision in your life that you feel would help a stranger understand you better.
An argument or encounter where you realized later that you were wrong.
Your earliest memory.
An event or experience that has stayed with you since early childhood. Why do you think you remember this event so vividly? What does this event tell us about you? About your memory? Is it possible that your memory of the events is inaccurate?
