A Good Narrative Essay is Hard to Write

The common issue with students of any level of education is that they experience unnecessary amounts of stress. Anxiety, frustration and being overwhelmed are also common culprits of a student’s well-being. All these factors and the pressure of performing can make an assignment feel hard to do, even if the assignment writing process isn’t that complex or difficult on its own. This is especially the case with a narrative essay, because once you have the format in mind and what your teacher expects from this assignment, it really isn’t that hard of a task to write one.

Start by making yourself an outline. What needs to go where, and how it all needs to be put together. This will allow you to stay focused and be able to simply fill in the blanks for your first draft, making the process a lot easier and smoother than you’d think. Take a few minutes to even get a rough sketch done of an outline, and it will make your time more than worth it.

Making it Easier to write your Essay

Here are a few more things you can do to make your life easier.

  • The first is to put everything you need in one place, so that you don’t lose anything. This is more important than you might think, because it is a huge time saver when you don’t have to go looking for something you misplaced.
  • Make a list of all the references and/or sources that you intend on using in this narrative essay. Then, when you go to write it, you can call upon your list for an appropriate statistic or quote at any time.
  • Have a friend come over, if you work better in groups, and talk about ideas, read each other’s essays, compare notes and help keep each other motivated.

Whatever you do, decide on what will help you focus, and what situation helps you to work the best. If you like noise, put on some low music in the background, or if you like quiet, lock yourself if your room or go outdoors. Just make sure that you feel comfortable and when you can work better, you’ll work faster and things will seem so much easier. It really depends on what makes you learn the best and what makes you the most efficient. Try out a few of the above suggestions to find what you like.
