What is a Narrative Structure?

A narrative structure is a pattern of events that tells a story. It can be simple or complex, but it always has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

The main elements of a narrative structure are:

  1. The conflict. This is the thing that causes the story to unfold, and it’s usually based on something that the character wants.
  2. The protagonist. This is the person or thing that the conflict is focused on.
  3. The setting. This is where the story takes place and the characters interact.
  4. The climax. This is the turning point in the story, and it usually results in the resolution of the conflict.
  5. The denouement. This is the final chapter of the story, and it’s usually a resolution of the conflict.
