Seven Steps to Creating a Powerful Story

A story, like most other writing, has a specific structure that creates powerful emotional reactions. Here is the basic structure.

1. An attention-grabbing opening that creates questions in the reader’s mind.

2. A strong character who wants something badly.

3. The character takes action to get what he or she wants.

4. An opponent or obstacle stops the character.

5. The character tries again and again until a climax is reached.

6. The climax ends with a lesson, moral, or call to action.

7. The story ends.
