Humorous Narrative

You wake up one morning, and you realize you are not yourself.  You are an inanimate object.

Write a humorous narrative for all of your human friends to read that tells what your new life is like.

Your story should have a beginning,  middle and end, and should describe your experiences in detail.

It should include all of the parts of a narrative:

  • characters
  • setting
  • problem
  • plot events
  • ending

and it should include all of the characteristics of a humorous story:

  • the premise, or  starting point, of the story is unusual
  • details give you warnings of surprises ahead
  • the main character has an interesting personality
  • the ending often has a twist, or  surprise, the reader doesn’t predict
