Story Plot Chart

Locate the subtab "plot chart" and plot out your narrative on the interactive diagram. After you finish creating the diagram, bring up the screen to print the diagram.

What should be included in your narrative?

1. Characters - you need more than one character and one of those characters must be yourself

2. Dialogue - there must be spoken dialogue between the characters; dialogue needs to be clear so that the reader can understand who is speaking

3. Conflict - your narrative needs to have conflict

4. Resolution - your narrative needs to have a clear resolution to the conflict

Begin writing your narrative. This should be created in a Word document, typed in Times New Roman 12 font. Your narrative should be 1 1/2-2 pages long, single spaced.
