Language Paper 1: Question 5

Narrative Writing

Write a story that begins with the sentence: ‘Walking past, they tried to ignore him, ignore the failings of humanity.’

LAYOUT – Experiment with using this narrative structure – it may help your writing style

Panoramic – describe the scene, broadly. Introduce the time and setting.

Zoom – focus your lens in on your character/s, describe them in detail.

Single line – add one line of dialogue from your character/s.

Shift – describe the incident that is taking place in the scene, talk the reader through the senses.

Shift – how does the incident reach a climax point? How does the atmosphere/mood change?

Panoramic – zoom out to look at the scene as a whole, how has it changed given the new information?

REMINDER

You must include:

  • a range of linguistic devices
  • a range of punctuation
  • ambitious vocabulary
  • varied structural features.

Plan before you write. Consider what you need to include (specifically) and where you will include it; create a tick list.

The incident does not have to be anything major – it can be an ordinary day, as long as it is convincing and compelling.
