Sensory language

Writers use sensory language as a means of making their writing more realistic and five scenes descriptive. They integrate the (sight, hearing, feeling, tasting, and smelling) within their writing to give the reader more of an understanding of the text.


Also called storyline. the plan, scheme, or main story of a literary or dramatic work, as a play, novel, or short story.


The setting is the environment in which a story or event takes place. Setting can include specific information about time and place

Point of view

Point of view is the angle of considering things, which shows us the opinion, or feelings of the individuals involved in a situation.

- First person point of view

A story told from the first person point of view involves the narrator as part of the story, and usually features the following pronouns: I, me, mine, our, we, us, etc.

-Second Person

Very rare in literature, this point of view treats the reader as the main character in the story. Other characters refer to the reader as "you."

-Third Person Point of View
Third person point of view is told by a narrator who is not part of the story and generally uses pronouns such as: he, she, it, they, them, him, her, its, etc.

-Third Person Omniscient
“Omniscient” means all-knowing. If a person is all-knowing, he or she knows the thoughts and feelings of everybody.

-Third Person Limited
Third person limited is similar to the omniscient point of view, but it is a limited viewpoint. The narrator only knows the thoughts and feelings of one character.
