“Travis O’Connor get out of your Nana’s garden. You know how special her flowers are,” shouted Mom out of the kitchen window.

Great stories that stand the test of time always have a definite hook at their beginning, lots of obstacles in their middle and a satisfying ending. The beginning of a story tells about the main character(s) and what is happening as well as defines the setting where the story takes place.
In the story’s middle, things get difficult for the character(s). He/she has to decide to take action to resolve the difficulties. Those actions are what solve the problems and result in the character(s) growth. Finally, the ending wraps up all the loose ends and leaves the reader with a sense of satisfaction.
