What Makes a Good Fantasy Story?
Similar to most other forms of fiction writing, what makes a fantasy story 'good' is very subjective to your reader's tastes. However, there are some key elements that can be included to make your fantasy story interesting. These include:
1. Magic: Inserting a little bit of magic into your story is a fantastic and common element of lots of fantasy stories. The presence of magic is what makes the fantasy genre stick out amongst other forms of fiction writing. A magical element refers to things that occur or exist in your story that do not or cannot exist in the real world. Elements of sorcery, witchcraft and enchantment, as well as fantastical creatures and the supernatural; advanced abilities or powers. You can use this plot to create conflict, drive the plot, or even spur on character development.
2. Setting: Just as any story, your fantasy story will need a great setting.Setting refers to the time and place that the story is set. For short fiction stories, this could be a single setting or time, whilst longer stories can make use of different settings. The setting of a fantasy story is usually wildly different from the one we live in. When you’re writing in this genre, your story can take place in a completely new world. To help you create the perfect fantasy setting, here are a few questions for you to answer:
What does it look, sound and smell like?
What are its people like? Are there distinct groups or classes? How does society operate?
Who holds the power in your world?
3. Intriguing characters:A character is a person in a story; either a human, a fantasy character, mythical character or even an animal. Characters in fantasy story writing often include witches, wizards, heroes, kings and queens filled with magic and mystery.

This pre on-demand writing assessment is the first step in our narrative writing unit! I cannot wait to see what you already understand about narrative writing. Today, you will write your best personal (you) narrative. This story must include you in it and be based on an event that happened in your life. You will only have 45-50 minutes to type it, so please use  your time wisely. You will need to plan, draft, revise, and edit during this time. Try your best, you will do great! You may use your writer's notebook to plan before you type. 


In your writing make sure to:
- Write a beginning for your story
- Use transition words to tell what happens in order. (Then, First, Last.....)
-Elaborate (tell in detail) to help your reader picture your story
-Show what your story is really about
-Write an ending for your story.
