Transcript of Short Story

Protagonist- the main character (usually the 'Good Guy').
Antagonist- the character in conflict with the protagonist.
Supporting/ minor characters- secondary characters who support the protagonist and the main plot.
Time and location of the story
The first problem is introduced in the exposition. The characters struggle with the problem throughout the story.

Short Stories...
...are a type of writing genre,
but they follow a format that
is found in movies, tv shows, cartoons, and plays.

The climax is the height of the rising action.

Rising Action
The plot must build as the story progresses (twists, complications, additional conflicts, surprises) otherwise the reader will lose interest.
Falling Action
The falling action is all the action that happens after the climax.

If the climax is a car wreck, the arrival of an ambulance is part of the falling action.

Imagine the author tying up loose ends.

Everything is explained and resolved; this is the end of the story.
