Regardless of the length of a story or the media form used to communicate the narrative, all stories basically consist of three simple parts. The beginning of the story is where we usually meet all the characters of the tale. This is also when the main character is defined. The middle of the story usually consists of the main character working on achieving the outcome they are working or hoping for. This is where the writer wants the reader to identify and analyze the depth of the main character. The end of the story is where we wrap up the conflict and provide a sense of resolution for the reader.
