Four simple but interesting ideas on how to end a narrative essay

When it comes to writing an academic paper, many students may think that there is no unique way for them to write said paper. However, that could not be farther from the truth.

Although essays have been a part of the academic system and curriculum for decades, everyone has their own approach to specific topics and subjects. Keeping this in mind, that also means not everyone thinks the same or comprehends the perspectives of others the same.

Writing a narrative essay is one of the most exciting assignments that students enjoy to complete. Being able to be graded on your thoughts means that technically there are no right or wrong answers (unless you purposely misrepresent a fact). This will include four amazing, yet simple and interesting ways on how you can end this paper on a high note.

End with an overall look of the paper

Your conclusion is meant to send off the reader with a clear understanding and reiteration of the paper. Ending your paper with a clear confirmation of being confident within the entire body of your work can make your readers feel at ease. Whether they agree with you or not, the one thing that will be hard to dispute is saying you (you as the reader) stuck to the topic at hand throughout the entire paper.

Defend your original opinion

If for any reason you think that after learning about opposing information that you are still right, and then say so. There is nothing wrong with standing by your opinions! We all have the right to think how we want and not what others want us to think like.

Note the differences you started out with and what you ended with

Throughout your paper, you should integrate your own opinions in addition to others. Doing so will allow yourself the chance to end your paper noting the lessons and new information you have learned (whether you agree with them or not).

Leave the conclusion open for questions and answers

Readers enjoy being able to feel included in a narrative essay. Ask questions that you would like for them to answer as if you are talking to them face to face throughout the entire paper.

As you can see, there are ways to end your narrative essay than just the generic “in conclusion…” way. While the latter is definitely fine without question, you should want your readers to feel as if when they here your entire perspective that they leave happy. Whether this means they are happy with your perspective/opinions, would like to question your thought, or they at least learn something new, an interesting ending is the icing on the cake for readers.
