Types of Writing
4 Types of Writing
The author puts themselves in their characters shoes and writes as if they were that person. They tell life stories and involve plots and storylines. Narrative is fun to read because you can replace the author with yourself and it will seem as if the story is happening to you.
the author intends to inform, explain, describe or define their subject to you.
uses a lot of great visual words to help you see the person, place or thing they are writing about. The writing can be poetic at times, and explain things in great detail.
takes on the opinion of the writer or issue the writer is writing for.
Imagine you are telling a friend how you felt before riding this roller coaster.
How do you feel? What do you see? What do you taste? What do you smell? What are you thinking?
I was really scared to ride the roller coaster. I felt a little sick, but excited at the same time. When the bar clicked into place, I held on tight. When the ride started, I hoped for the best.
As I slid into the red plastic seat of the roller coaster, my mouth went dry and my hands felt clammy. The bar in front of me clicked into place and I gripped it so hard my knuckles turned white. I could taste the cotton candy I’d eaten earlier at the back of my throat. When the car jolted forward, my stomach dropped, I held my breath, and I told myself I would survive.
recounts a personal experience in the form of a story and always includes characters, setting, and plot
Examples: short story, novel, narrative poem, journal
uses vivid images to describe a person, place, or event so that the topic can be clearly “seen” in the reader’s mind.

Write a 1-2 paragraph travel brochure describing your favorite place.

Make sure to use as many descriptive words as you can! You want your reader to feel as if he or she has been there for themselves!
Though his father had been a television producer when he lived in Vietnam and his mother had been a dancer and an actress, neither one was happy when their son, Xuan Tri (Dustin) decided to become an actor here in the United States. They thought Dustin should be an engineer and they worked hard to pay for his college. In fact, they went on paying for his college tuition for more than a year after he had dropped out because they thought he was still in school. When they found out he had been taking acting lessons and auditioning for TV roles, they were very angry and disappointed.
Mary Jane, the fifteenth child of seventeen, was born on July 10, 1875, in Mayesville, South Carolina. Looking into her new daughter's open eyes, Patsy McLeon, an ex-slave, thought, "She will show us the way out."

Neither Patsy nor Mary's father, Samuel, had a surname until Samuel chose McLeod, his ex-master's family name.

Tall and muscular, Samuel was a kind, skillful carpenter and farmer, who also worked well with leather and tin. Patsy cooked nearby in the big McIntosh house. Small and lithe, she walked with the queenly grace of her royal African ancestors. Her smile lit Samuel's heart.

When Samuel asked McLeod for permission to marry Patsy, his master agreed. But first Samuel had to earn the money to buy her. So after doing a normal day's work, he labored for other farmers, and, in two years, the loving couple celebrated their wedding.
