1. Character

A character is a person, or sometimes even an animal, who takes part in the action of a short story or other literary work.


2. Setting

The setting of a short story is the time and place in which it happens. Authors often use descriptions of landscape, scenery, buildings, seasons or weather to provide a strong sense of setting.


3. Plot

A plot is a series of events and character actions that relate to the central conflict.


4. Conflict

The conflict is a struggle between two people or things in a short story. The main character is usually on one side of the central conflict. On the other side, the main character may struggle against another important character, against the forces of nature, against society, or even against something inside himself or herself (feelings, emotions, illness).



5. Theme

The theme is the central idea or belief in a short story.



6. Resolution

The solution to the problem is the way the action is resolved. It is important that the resolution fit the rest of the story in tone and creativity and solve all parts of the conflict.



7. Climax

The most intense, exciting, or important point of something; a culmination or apex.


8. Author
