Tips on How to Write an Interesting Narrative Essay

When you are writing a narrative essay your goal is to narrate. Your goal is to tell a story or explain something to the reader. In some cases you may have to write about yourself. It is important to pay specific attention to your particular requirements and if you are unsure of what those requirements are it is important to ask your teacher or TA. This will ensure you are on the right track to getting a great grade.

When you are writing your interesting narrative essay it is important to note the following information:


  • Tip 1: Many narrative essays might ask you to provide your personal historical background. The intention of this part is that they want to learn more about your motivation to attending the graduate education in the specific field. It is important to avoid this information if you are not obligated to provide it.

  • Tip 2: When writing down this information, you need to be thoughtful as you are limited by your own imagination. However, you need to be very careful when coming up with this part as probably, it will make or break your application. Most importantly, you should be careful not to provide too much information and providing excess information that may not be necessary.

  • Tip 3: Many students may want to show their work by providing a lot of information that may not be necessary to the selection panel. They forget that this is an application essay and not an autobiography. On the other hand, some applicants write very little information that may not be useful to the panel. In such cases, it is recommended that you focus on what you want to do than what you have already done. The skills and interests that you write down as part of your essay should be relevant to the program you are applying for. You should also do the best to balance your personal history with academics, professional experience and your specific personal information. Try as much as you can to avoid family information as it will not be relevant to the panel.

The information that could be included in a personal-type statement is limited only by your own imagination and life history, but you should ensure you are careful about what things you choose to include. There are two things for which you should be on the lookout: (1) be careful not to say too much and/or (2) be careful not to say enough.
