Simple Story    

Step 7: Simple Story

A story can be divided into three parts, cleverly:

  1. Beginning
  2. Middle
  3. End

The beginning sets up the story, showing the protagonist in his "ordinary world" and how and why he makes the decision to pursue the story goal.

The middle, the longest section, consists of a series of actions and reactions that show the progress and problems of the progatonist pursuing the story goal.

The end describes how the story is resolved.

Identify in a few sentences each what happens to your protagonist in the beginning, middle, and end of your story.
