Narrative storytelling

Some stories speak to a reader's heart or they have a unique angle to give readers something interesting to think about. For those types of stories, consider writing them in a narrative style. This presentation will get you started.

  • 26. @CarmelJim NUT GRAF: Tells readers why they should care. Part of Courtney’s problem, a new study indicates, may be that he sleeps in on the weekends. The study, conducted at Brown University, indicates that teenagers may be better off getting up at the same time on Saturday and Sunday they do during the week. The research showed after kids stayed up late on the Friday and Saturday night and slept in the next morning, they caused their internal body clocks to reset to a later time.This made them foggy in the mornings early in the week, especially on Monday, when they had to get up at a normal time. Saturday, March 7, 15
  • 27. @CarmelJim NUT GRAF: Tells readers why they should care. Cunningham is not alone. According to Officer Gene Stilts, thieves at this school took $24,757 worth of valuables from students, $10,000 of which were video iPods.And that total doesn’t include the cash taken as well. “There were 20 incidents last year (involving stolen money) that totaled up for a stolen amount of $770, and if you divide 770 by 20, then that’s a lot of money,” Stilts said. “Sometimes I think the school gives off a false sense of security. People don’t think that their stuff will be stolen here, but it will,” Stilts said. “Students need to treat the school like the Greyhound Bus Terminal.They should never leave their stuff unattended.” Saturday, March 7, 15
