Story writing is an adventure. You choose your destination. This is your story's setting. Next, think of some people and animals you may encounter. You, plus the people and animals, are your story's characters. What could happen to your characters? What would you do? If that didn’t work, what else could you do? What if things got even worse? You are clever, you'll find a solution. All these things that happen and the solutions you come up with are your story's plot. Ready? Let's give it a go.
