I have faced many challenges so far when writing my narrative. The most difficult part at this point has been trying to write a good introduction. I want an introduction that makes the reader eager to read the rest of my paper. The introduction is the most important part because it gives the reader a good idea of what the paper is going to be about without giving too much information, so that the reader wants to keep reading. I also donít want to make it too long. It needs to be short and to the point. I donít want to give away too many details and put content that should be in the body in the introduction. I also have problems with starting paragraphs off. I find myself repeating the almost the same first sentence in each body paragraph which I donít want to do. I need to try to switch it up so it doesnít sound like a list. Another challenge I have faced when writing my narrative is deciding whether or not I want to write about what I have chosen. I have a few experiences I could write about and I sometimes wonder if I should have chosen differently. However, I have decided that this is the one I want to go with because I feel that it is the most life changing experience I have had. The easiest part so far has been getting past the first sentence in the paragraph and actually writing about my experience. Itís easy to write about a life changing experience. You remember every little detail that happened and it just makes the paper better. I feel like I have so much to tell in my experience so it makes the body part pretty easy. I havenít started on my conclusion yet, but I feel like it is going to be tough. I have to wrap everything up without overdoing it. Iím going to have to restate my thesis and make sure my conclusion isnít too much like my introduction. Hopefully I can overcome the challenges I will be facing in this paper and make a kick ass grade.
