Narratives are nothing but stories which are fabricated in a creative format, creating a series of fictional and non-fictional outcomes called events.

  • Creative formats or constructive formats are the work of writing, speech, poetry, prose, pictures, song, motion pictures, video games, and theater or dance.

  • The genesis of the word narrate is from the Latin word, meaning "to retail", which is associated with the word gnarus which means "acknowledging" or "efficient".

  • To summarize, the word was born from proto-Indo-Europe and means "to acknowledge". The word 'narrative' could have been an alternative to the word 'story', although narratives refer to a series of events - it is possible there will be narratives within narratives.
The crux of narration is the narrative way. Narration is a process used for communication of narratives. Narration is one mode of discussion along with other three modes of exposition, argumentation and description. Narration is the fiction writing means, by which a communication is set up in between narrator and the reader.
