Muse Monday: Elements of a story in an addictive tune... via @DefinitionHouse #flocabulary #writetip

Five elements you'll need when writing a story, no matter the word count...

Plot. Characters. Conflict. Theme. Setting.

Setting sets the scene. Gives the where and when.
Plot is the action. A series of events. A quest for satisfaction.
Characters are the people in the story who carry out the action.
Conflict has something going wrong. A struggle in the plot (internal and external).
Theme is the main idea. The central belief. Usually something abstract.
