Mood is the atmosphere that the author is trying to create around you.

plot development

The events that take place in the story which are comprised of introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.

character development

How the character comes along like there back story and how they will learn in the story maybe they start to think better or worse. Just like human and how we choose to grow up and how our parents teach us.


Setting is where a story or event takes place. It can include a specific place and location if needed.

5 W's

Who, what, when, where, why Its a diagram to help plan out the very start of your story or anything really that this could apply to. It could apply to just writing a newspaper or even just a simple letter to someone.


A general description or plan giving the essential features of something but not the detail. An example would be starting a story but only putting little detail in it.
