Narrative Writing Tip #4: Use transitionary words to connect sentences such as therefore, however, or for example. This would, therefore, make your story more interesting and coherent!

Hello again, and welcome back to the series, The Writing Process: Narrative Writing.

Through this series, you will complete and publish a piece of narrative writing. Each lesson is designed to take you through another step of the writing process, so it is very important that you keep all work from previous Related Lessons, found in the right-hand sidebar. In this fourth lesson, you will edit your writing, the final step before it is published.

Let's get started!

As you learned in the previous Related Lessons, a narrative work is a piece of writing that tells an account of something personal. Narratives include dialogue, action, focus and purpose, sensory details, and importance of event.

You also completed the brainstorming, prewriting, writing, and revising on a narrative topic.

Before you begin the fourth step of the writing process, editing your writing, take a few minutes to watch this Writing a Personal Narrative: Editing for Kids video on narrative editing. The video will show you what areas you should focus on when editing your writing. As you watch, make a list of what you should look for when you edit your narrative piece:


As you saw in the video, the focus of editing is spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. Move on to the next section for some editing practice!
