SIMBA/NALA NARRATIVE HOW DO I WRITE IT?
ASSIGNMENT: PG 13 • Imagine that you are Nala or Simba, and you want to tell a friend the story of going to the graveyard. Draft a narrative of what happened there. Tell how and where the story started, the sequence of events, and how it ended. Include the setting, details of the characters’ feelings, and dialogue. You are telling the events in first-person point of view, so use “I” when you write your narrative. • I am writing from the point of Nala OR Simba (circle one).
BEGINNING • Introduces the subject • Start with a “hook” • Start with the word Imagine • Imagine, entering a dark and spooky place all by yourself. • Start with a sound. • Creak! The door began to open. • Start in the middle of the action. • Suddenly, I heard a loud crash come from the inside of the cave. • Start with a surprising statement. • Nala and I were in a fight for our lives!
More ways to begin • Start with the character talking. • “ I thought you were brave!” • Start with important background information. • We had just escaped from that interfering bird, Zazu and were playing. All of a sudden we rolled down a hill…” • Start at the end…then flash back to the story. • Simba and I are lucky to be alive today.
MIDDLE • Tells the Story • Include some dialogue (not too much!) • Include important details (Who, What, When, Where, Why, How) • Explain, examples, proof, DETAILS! • Always tell feelings about the story • USE ACTION VERBS! (sizzled, crashed, taped, slammed, blared, gobbled, banging, sliding, blasting, glistening, challenge, frighten, terrorized, embarrass, peering etc…)
ENDING • THE END • TELL THE ENDING • TELL HOW YOU (pretending to be SIMBA OR NALA) CHANGED
NEXT • WE HAVE TO PLAN IT OUT FIRST!
