All of the details relate to the main point the writer is attempting to make.We all have experiences lodged in our memories, which are worthy of sharing with readers.Yet sometimes they are so fused with other memories that a lot of the time spent in writing narrative is in the prewriting stage. With nowhere else to go, we moved into our church’s back room for three months, where I shamefully tried to hide our toothbrushes and extra shoes from other church members. A few years earlier, my family of nine had been evicted from the home we had been living in for the past ten years. My sacrifice translated to a closer bond with my siblings and deeper conversations with my parents, helping me understand the true meaning of a unified family and the valuable part I play in that. Right then I made a commitment to my family to contribute financially in whatever way I could.While the information in these reports is basic to other forms of writing, narrative reports lack the "higher order thinking" that essays require.Thus narrative reports do not, as a rule, yield high grades for many college courses. In other words, narrative reports often overlook the authors purpose or point of view expressed through the book or article. I’ve seen that even as a high school student, I have so much potential to impact my family and beyond -- how one small act can go a long way. With the financial stability that my part-time jobs provided my mother could stay home to raise seven children, my learning-disabled older sister could attend college, my younger sister could go on a mission trip to Korea, and my twin siblings could compete in national math competitions.
