  Last updated July 2008
     Personal: about oneself
       (personal property)

                                   A diary is considered
                                   personal property.



Carrying their weapons, military
personnel rushed toward the
commotion.
      Personnel: employees
       (military personnel)
    A personal
   narrative is…
•A true story   Honest, it


•About you!
                really
                happened!
How do I get started on the task
of writing a personal narrative?
                  Step 1
• Make a list of interesting or humorous
  experiences you’ve had.
                            Step 2
• Consider your list carefully. Cross out
  those things that aren’t MAINLY about you
  and those that you can’t remember very
  well.
  – 1. The time my brother broke his arm
  – 2. My parents accidentally left me at the mall when I was four months
    old.
  – 3. My Florida vacation when I was nine.
  – 4. The shaving cream/ water balloon battle I had at camp last month.
Consider your audience:
 Who will be reading or listening to your story?


      Friend                                       Teacher




         Younger, random, cloned
         children living on the beach
  Ways to tell about your real-life
           experience:
• Chronological order
• Chronos is the Greek god of time.
