How to Write a Story:

The following points are to be noted before you start your work of developing a story.
  1. Order of sequence in the story.
  2. Correct language in the story.
  3. Length of the story.

1. Order of sequence: A story has number of events and happenings. The events or happenings take place in a certain order which should not be disturbed. The given hints or the points to describe the events must be expended fully so that the interest is not lost.
2. Correct Language: This is most important aspect of story writing for you. The sentences are to be made correctly. There shouldn't be any mistakes of grammar. Therefore, make simple and short sentences. See that you do not miss any point in the given outline. Revise whatever you have written. Read it again.
3. Length of the story: While developing or expanding the outline hints, you have to see that you do not write unnecessary long details. You have to keep in mind the limits of the length of the story. It should not be a long one. Expand the points into short sentences and keep to the points given in the outline. The length of the story is important.

The most important elements of a story are:

  1. Plot
  2. Time and Setting
  3. Action
  4. Character(s)
  5. Dialogues


i) Plan the entire narrative before beginning to write the first draft. Use simple and natural language keeping in mind the target readers. Begin the story by describing some action or situation or character or setting or mood such that the reader is drawn to the story. Make the beginning as interesting as possible.

ii) Further the action logically but not necessarily chronologically. The narrative can travel both forward and backward in time.

iii) Add an element of surprise so that readers keep guessing what may follow and remain gripped by the narrative.

iv) Do develop the characters. Make them appear to be true to life.

v) Add dialogues to make the story interesting and dramatic. They lend the story an element of authenticity and help develop characters and further action.

vi) End the story at a point where the conflict may stand resolved or pave the way for more action and, therefore, more conflict.

vii) Alternatively, conclude the story in an open-ended way, leaving it for the readers to draw their own conclusions as to what may have happened in the end.

viii) Give the story a suitable title.


1. Provide a Setting: Introduce characters, setting, time, weather, etc. You may like to start with a flash back of an incident that happened before your story began. Go on to show something happening or a character doing something.

2. Dialogue: Include conversations between the characters or a monologue to make the narrative interesting, dramatic & authentic.

3. Plot: Build action around a single incident and ensure the following stages:
Initiating action: The point of a story that starts the rising action
Rising action: Events leading up to the climax or turning point
Climax: The most intense point or turning point of the story
Falling action: Your story begins to conclude
Cliff-hanger: Don't complete your story and don't tell the audience what happens in the end and leave them to imagine the end.

(This is useful if you run out of time and don't have time to finish the story) Resolution: A satisfying ending to the story in which the central conflict is resolved or not!

4. Title: the story an interesting title, which could be a single word, a phrase or a complete sentence.

5. Choose Appropriate Language: Make use of a mix of simple past, past continuous and past perfect tense, if the story happens in the past. Use adjectives and adverbs to describe characters and action respectively. Introduce dialogue in direct speech as far as possible. Make your story readable by giving its plot a correct sequence with the help of discourse markers like 'once upon a time', 'then', 'next', after that, in the end etc.

When writing a stary, keep the following points in mind:

  1. Make the characters seem true to life.
  2. Put in some dialogues to make it appear natural and interesting.
  3. Try to give a surprise ending.
  4. Give the story a suitable title.

For Example: Write a short story based on the following hints. Remember to give your story a suitable title.
King has monkey - monkey allowed to go anywhere in palace - one day King fast asleep – monkey fans and comforts him- fly sits
