  • Exposition- The introductory material which gives the setting, creates the tone, presents the characters, and presents other facts necessary to understanding the story.
  • Conflict- The essence of fiction; it creates plot. The conflicts (or obstacles/problems) we encounter can usually be identified as one of four types (see below).

  • Resolution- (aka denouement) Rounds out and concludes the action.
