The Parts of a Story

The three main parts of a story are the CHARACTER, the SETTING, and the PLOT.
These three elements work together to hold your reader's interest.

  • CHARACTER: A person, animal or imaginary creature in your story. There are usually one or two main characters. There can be many secondary characters too. Make your characters interesting so that they hold your reader's interest.

  • SETTING: This is where your story takes place. The setting is a time - the future, the past, or now. The setting is also the place - on the moon, in Chicago, at the Whitehouse. The setting is an important part of your story.

  • PLOT: The plot of your story tells the actions and events that take place in your story. Your plot should have a beginning, a middle and an end. The plot tells the events of your story in a logical order.
