Here are some key features to remember when writing a recount:
I used the stars to navigate across the desert.
It took a long time!
Have a clear structure. Use paragraphs to separate different events and ideas.
Within each paragraph include observations (what you saw), thoughts and feelings.
I was so relieved to see the next city; my throat was dry, and I needed water.
Diaries (recounts) are written in the order in which they happened - chronological order. Use time conjunctions like primarily, next, then and finally to show this.
Use description to add detail so the reader can build an image in their head.
The sand dunes were as tall as mountains.
I put blood, sweat and tears into my journey; I have no regrets!
