A narrative is a story. Narrative writing simply means story writing. And just as there are conventions and rules to follow when composing other kinds of texts, narrative writing has its own conventions. Some of the vital ingredients needed to create a story are plot, character, setting and dialogue. Beyond those, a writer should check that the story makes sense and keeps the reader engaged. Simple, right?
