Everyone enjoys a good story—especially one that captures the imagination. In it, the writer places a personal experience within the context of a larger theme, such as a lesson learned.
When writing a narrative essay, the writer wants not only to tell a good story, but also convey the story has meaning.
Let’s say you are going to present a tale about your travel abroad, specifically an experience of being “pick-pocketed” in Florence, Italy.
You might begin with a startling fact about the number of incidents of this crime in a day in that city or the fact that child gypsies are sent out by their families to pick-pocket as a means of supporting those families.
