are often one of the first types of writing that you do. You write
about yourself and experiences that you have encountered, read,
or heard about. You can become much more engaged when your write
about yourself in personal narratives because you are the expert
on the topic of your life.
When you write stories
from your own experience, you already have a plot.
Your job will be to make the story
interesting - as interesting for your reader as it was for you
when it happened. Lots of description, lots of action, and lots
of dialogue will help your reader feel what you felt.
