Story Literary Elements

Some basics that every good story must have ….

Every story needs characters


Or Creatures

The protagonist is the “good guy”

The antagonist is the “bad guy” or force

Great stories have a conflict

Man vs. Man

Man vs. Nature Man vs. Society Man vs. Machine Man vs. Himself

A hint about what will happen next is called foreshadowing
For example, if you hear this: Then you know someone’s about to get eaten!

The time and place of the story is the setting

The climax is the most exciting part!!

The point of view is the perspective of the story

“That rotten wolf tried to eat us!!!!”

“I was framed! I just wanted to borrow a cup of sugar!”

Whether you’re the reader, or the writer, a great story includes all these literary elements!!!
