Your narrative can be told in either first (use of “I”) or third person (an omniscient narrator).
Your narrative should include dialogue between characters. Remember that whenever you change speakers, you should begin a new paragraph.
Your final draft should be a minimum of 800 words and follow MLA format.
Please note to avoid narratives stories that deal with someone getting in a car crash or making a bad choice at a party as these ideas have been done to death by previous students.
MLA format = 10 percent
Centered on a moral = 20 percent
Grammar / spelling = 20 percent
Dialogue used properly = 10 percent
Story content = 40 percent
Additionally, points are taken off for not meeting minimum length requirements on a percentage basis (example 640 words out of 800 words would be a 20 % off penalty as 20% of the paper is missing), plagiarism, and being far off topic.
