Realistic Fiction

Katherine Aasen & Sean Harris


-Although untrue, could happen. Some events, people, and places may be true.

-A story with a realistic plot and with realistic characters that hasn't happened but could.

-A story forged but realistic; it could really have occurred or an illusory story where folks and actions are truthful and could occur in actual life expectancy.


Characters in a realistic fiction have to be just that, realistic. This genre requires these kinds of characters because you have to connect to them, and make you think that you are in their shoes.

The traits in most realistic fiction characters are traits that you could have. Such as caring, open-minded, adventurous, any traits that you could possibly have


-The places in a realistic fiction story have to be a place that you could actually go.

example; a beach, New York, a playground.

non-examples- In Wonderland, in a fairy land, Spongebob's Pineapple under the sea.

You need to be actually able to go to these places, They have to exist.
