“Narrative” comes from the word “narrate” which of course means to tell a story; narrative writing includes novels, biographies, autobiographies, short stories, essays, plays, historical accounts, plays, and so on. Narrative writing can be either fiction or non-fiction.
When writing a narrative, the best way to start is to just start. There are specific parts and an order in a properly written narrative, but the most important thing to do is to get your ideas on paper first. Don’t slow yourself down worrying about the formal details at the beginning. Good writing takes practice; but all narratives have a beginning, a middle and an end.
