A storm is in your head. A BRAIN Storm!

No, it's not a thunderstorm in your head. It's a whole slew of ideas, thoughts, and many more. So, if you're trying to cook up a story plan, just think of some ideas, and BAM! Brainstorm. Maybe even jot it down on a piece of paper. For my story, for example, I had a HUGE brainstorm. It gave me ideas for many things. The characters, plot, etc.

Error. No grammer found. Sentence is not correct. Revising process started.

Sorry for acting like a computer. Revising and editing IS for errors, though. When there is a capitalization error, draw 3 lines under that letter, then capitalize it. Another example is puncuation. When adding something, draw an arrow, then add it above. That's editing. But, revising is different. Revising is when people read your story before editing. Most writing teachers recommend it. When they see something wrong, they might point it out. Quite literally, in fact. They may or may not edit it for you.

Here's a review on the topics we learned. Ready? Good!

*In a doctor's office..* Doctor: His heart is still beating. See that line? It's a Plotline in the heart monitor..

Up above, I briefly mentioned a plotline. Here is an article about it.

A plotline is shaped like a mountain, almost. It doesn't tell a good hospital TV show, but it leads the events in a book through the plotline. It starts from the introduction, stating the problem, or cast of characters, then it goes to rising action, which is leading up to the climax, the exciting part of the story. Then it goes downhill with falling action, which is reaching the resolution, the answer of the story. The finale.


Setting is the time and/or place a story takes place. It can also be where a backdrop or mood initiates, or unfolds in the story. Ex: "Titanic" took place in 1997, on a ship called Titanic going through the Atlantic Ocean. They ran into an iceberg, and the ship sank, killing more than a thousand people.

New Attraction: The View. Be sure to stop by, and point at it. The owners call it "Point of View."

The point of view is described in two ways. First Person is looking through the main character's eyes. When words like "I", "Me", or "Mine" appear, that's when you know it's First Person. Third Person omniscient is when you can read other people's thoughts while in third person. Third Person limited however, is when you read the thoughts of one specific person, rather than everyone else's.
