Good Stories Have Specific Elements

January 24, 2020

The elements that go into any story are made of up characters, setting, conflict, plot and theme. In creative writing school, we learned that conflict was the most important element in the craft of fiction. Plot is everything that happens in the story, setting is the location the story takes place in, whether inside someone’s head, a spaceship, or another planet. To have a coherent plot means that your story will work as necessary. The short story is a genre found inside American literature that is filled with many examples. I do know how to write a short story, and a novella but I’ve been afraid to write a short story for many years. I’m going to try to write a short story this year, and get it published.
