Narrative Essay --->

Narrative -> (Story) Beginning - Middle - End
Narration -> The telling of the story (language)

How to format the essay:

* Must be written in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person throughout

Status Quo (Intro)
-> Main characters established
-> Relationships established
-> Talk about how life set up
-> The status quo starts the interest in the story

-Complication happens
-In the middle there is a gradual increase and fall in interest of the story

-> Make a shift so that readers know climax is coming
-> Climax (break) happens
-> Immediately interest starts falling

Status Quo (conclusion)
-> Changes the ideas that were stated in the first status quo
-> Shows the reader the "point" of the story
