Ideas to make a narrative text
A narrative text is a text that tells a story that takes place in a specific time period and place. Narrative refers to the way the story is told, as a sequence or as a series of actions performed by the characters, which allows the reader to imagine the situation.
Stories, characters and places can be real, imaginary or based on true events. The narrator of the story may or may not be the author himself and is the one who tells the story to the reader using any of the three grammatical persons (first person, second person or third person).
Narration is used both in everyday communication to convey information and in literature to create fictional stories. Each author has his or her own style of narration, in addition to maintaining a general structure that identifies narrative texts with an introduction, a development and a denouement.
The purpose of a narrative text is to tell a story, inform or entertain the reader. It is characterized by the figure of a narrator who may appear through a character within the story and will be in the first or second person, or in the case of an omnipresent narrator, the story will be in the third person.

Expressiveness: whether it is an oral or written production, in an anecdote the expressive and appellative functions predominate, with calls for attention to our interlocutor, such as: “Don’t you know what happened to me today?”, “Do you remember…?”; and, especially in oral language, also the phatic function to ensure good communication: “Do you understand?”; “Okay?” “Huh?”
