When telling a story, there are five main elements used. These elements include: the plot, the characters, the conflict, the theme and the setting.
THE PLOT : The plot consists of a sequence of events that tells the entire story. The plot is divided into counter parts that include:
The exposition which is when the characters are introduced.
The rising action which sets up the conflict of the story.
The climax which is the turning point in the story where the character reaches the peak of the conflict. Generally, this conflict changes the character in some way.
The falling action which is when loose ends in the story are wrapped up or resolved.
The resolution which brings the story to a close.
THE CHARACTERS: The characters include the main characters who will be part of the entire story, as well as secondary characters that help the main characters encounter the conflict and/or resolve the conflict.
THE CONFLICT : The conflict is the challenge the character(s) must face in order to grow and change who they are. Most stories contain several small conflicts and one large or major conflict.
THE THEME: The theme is the moral, social, religious or political views and opinions of the writer and their reason for telling the story.
THE SETTING: The setting tells us when and where the story takes place. It can also include weather conditions.
