5 types of essays:
narrative stories: 2 main types
1. character/problem/solution narratives
-most common type
-main characters, or hero, has some hard of struggle or problem
-solves his/her own problems
-as a result, the main characters has grown or charged in some way
-this personal growth is what the story is about
2.personal experience narratives
-the focus is on an experience, a setting (place) or an activity.
-on history problem
-simple begining,middle,end with no tersion->very direct
-author used vivid language and detailed descriptions to keep the reader interested
-the reader is to view the history through the 5 scenes of the main character
*common error of type 2: the personal experience is not that of the winter, but of the main character.
-both types of narrative stories are interested to entertain an audience of others.
DIFFERENCES between expository writing and narrative writing.
