    •  Characteristics of Good  Narration
    • PLOT the sequence of events that take place in a story
    • SETTING the time and place in which the events of a story take place
    • CHARACTERIZATION the methods used to present the personality of a character in a narrative Direct: the author describes the character Indirect: the reader judges what the character is like based on what they say or do, or what other characters say about them.
    • ATMOSPHERE the general mood or feeling established in a piece of literature (created through word choice and pacing) Word Choice: the author uses words that make the reader feel a certain way Pacing: the author controls the speed at which we read through sentence length, punctuation, repetition of words and other techniques.
    • POINT OF VIEW who is narrating the story First person: the narrator uses "I" to tell the action, and is involved in the story Third person: the story is told from a perspective outside the story (characters are referred to by name, or as “he”, “she”, “they”)
    • CONFLICT  the central problem that drives the action of a story Internal: The conflict happens in a character's mind External: The conflict happens between characters, or between a character and some outside force, like nature.
