How to write a recount

How to write a recount

  • Write your recount in the first person because it happened to you! Eg "I felt excited."
  • Use the past tense because it has already happened. Eg "It was the biggest fish I had ever seen!"
  • Recounts are written in the order in which they happened. This is called chronological order. Use adverbs such as: firstly, next, then and finally.
  • Using descriptive words will make it seem like your reader is there with you. Eg "The fish was shiny and slippery." Focus on the most exciting parts.
