- The subject – Who is the main character? What is the problem?
- The story –What is the character’s motivation to solve the problem? What actions occur to solve the problem?
- The resolution – What are results of the character’s acts to resolve the problem? What change does the character undertake because of that action?
- Remember the main character needs a good reason for what they are doing. They need to act consistent to who they are.
- You need to set up every incident in the story. If the character obtained a high position using a falsified resume, make sure you set this up by doing a flashback or remembrance where she is sitting typing the resume and then clicks submit thinking no one ever checks a resume.
- If you bring it up you must conclude it. This refers to conflict in the story. If you have any conflict, you need to resolve it prior to ending the story.
