Have you noticed when learning English in high school? Recount text does have the same thing with story. Further many people are calling recount text into a personal narrative. Even so personal narrative should be distinguished from a narrative text which we discussed earlier.
How to Make Well Written Personal Recount Story
1. To remember events that never happened.
2. Choose the experience to be told.
3. Write down the main points of the events experienced by watching
a. when and where the incident occurred
b. people involved in the incident
c. feelings you experience when it
d. summary of events
4. Classify the events are fun and less fun.
Those are the steps to make the outline to write a well organized recount text. For detail implementation, see 3 samples below!
