Story Writing

Concept: Write a Story on the Outline

Definition:

A story outline is a pre-writing tool used to organize your story. It's a way to visually see the arc of your story and the major points you need to hit, so you can create a comprehensive plan for writing your book.

How to Develop a Story with an Outline?

Look at the outline of a story given below.

Boy

First day in school – Ravi – fourth grade in school – got ready – nervous – reached 10 mins before – class was full – stand up and pray – teacher – first chapter of English – ten minutes break – played badminton – continued class – lunch break in 12.30 – Dosa – class till 2.30 – school got over - good day.

The First Day

Today is the first day of Ravi’s fourth grade in his school. He woke up early in the morning and got ready. He was slightly nervous as it was the first day of the new grade. He reached school 10 minutes before time. He could see the class was already full of students. After sometime the teacher came and asked everyone to stand up and pray. Then, she started to teach the first chapter of the English textbook. After the class got over, the students got a ten-minute break. He went to the playground and played badminton with his classmates for some time. After that, they continued to have classes until they had their lunch break at 12:30 pm. Ravi ate dosa prepared by his mother for lunch. After the lunch break, the students had two more classes till 2:30. Finally, at 2:30 pm everybody left for home. It was a good day indeed.

Give the title to the story. Make sure the title is relatable to the story.

Examples:

The First Day
First, take a look at the characters given in the outline. They can be people, animals, or objects.

Examples:

Ravi, students, classmates, badminton.
Next, see the information given in the outline and make them into complete sentences to form the story.

Examples:

Outline: First day in school – Ravi – fourth grade in school
Complete sentence Today, it is the first day of Ravi in fourth grade in his school.

  1. Follow the sequence as given in the story. Make sure to write the story in the same sequence. The Beginning, middle and end of the story should be same in the story.

Common Mistakes

Do not add any such detail which is not relevant to the outline given. In such case, the additional information will take the story in a different path.

Examples:

Ram – studying in grade 2 – went to the field – cricket with friends - ball went high in the sky – broke a window pane – uncle got angry – scolded – gave them the ball.
