Five Elements of a Story
Setting, that’s like where it’s going down,
Could be the train compartment, a castle or a town,
Could be the Arctic winter – like To Build a Fire,
The temperature’s dropping, excitement is getting higher,
Setting sets the scene so the scene seems set,
Could be the Italian restaurant where we met,
Setting gives us the where and the when,
Could be modern day, the future, or way back when.
Plot, Character, Conflict, Theme,
Setting, yes these are the 5 things
That you’re going to be needing
When you’re reading or writing
A short story that’s mad exciting. (x2)
