Narrative essays are written somewhat similarly to descriptive essays. The writer is expected to use descriptive language to set a scene but the narrative requires a particular perspective to be clear with reference to the setting and the time in which the described incidence takes place. Some topics have been over utilized in this style because they are simple to narrate. This is not to imply that such topics are bad, merely that they are often just as boring to read as they are to write and they don’t help you stretch your limits as a writer. If you want to avoid the low hanging fruit, use this list for some less conventional ideas:
You may have noticed that the topics listed above were…out of the ordinary. Most likely you’ve encountered other lists of narrative essay topics but few held your attention as effectively. This is because things that are different shock us on some level and make us want to keep looking if only to understand more. This is a technique you can use to draw readers in and to explore the fringes of your own ability. How convincingly do you think you could write from the perspective of an alien or someone seconds away from almost certain death? Even if you’re uncertain of your ability to fully convey the emotions of those situations, you will benefit more from trying than from writing “My first day of college” or any other trite topics. Write boldly.
