Planning the P.N.

Hello, writers and teachers,

This week we will continue the writing process for the personal narrative. You should already have a good idea of the incident you want to write about. The next step is to plan the story. 

Review the following narrative checklist:

and create a plot mountain for your story:

Start to fill out the plot mountain by identifying the climax or turning point of your story. The events leading to the climax constitute the rising action, and the events following the climax constitute the falling action. 

Give this step careful thought, but be brief. You will develop your ideas when you write the rough draft. The plot mountain is simply a way to organize the main events of your story.

You will find examples of personal narratives on this website:


Also, spend some time reviewing adjectives by completing a few activities on the following list:


Talk to you next week!
