Planning the Fictional Narrative

Posted on May 5, 2013 at 7:44 PM
Hello, writers and teachers,

Congratulations on coming up with fabulous ideas for your narrative! 

The next step in the writing process is the planning. Here's a tip: Identify the climax (the turning point) of your story, and then, determine the sequence of events that will lead to it. Finally, plan your ending. Use the following story diagram to write your plan. (Remember that your plan is simply a road map for your writing, so it doesn't have to be very detailed -- save the details for your rough draft.)

Next week we'll work on developing the setting and the characters. Start thinking about these two elements. Try gathering images to help you visualize the place, time period, and people in your story.

Happy writing!

Teachers: Check out the Plot House digital poster on my TPT store. 

P.S. Add canned chicken breast and shredded cheese to a tortilla, and heat it up for 30 seconds in the microwave for a yummy, easy quesadilla. Or enjoy a scrumptious chili con carne with beans: Yum!
