CHARACTER, SETTING, AND THEME

Today, we’re going to discuss three basic story elements: characters, setting, and theme. Characters, of course, are the lifeblood of fiction, whether they be human or animal. Setting denotes a story’s time and place (sometimes including its weather). Then, there’s the point of the story—its main idea or theme.

Listen to the full episode as we go more in-depth with each of these and how to use each element in the appropriate way for the type of story you are writing.
