Understanding the elements of a story will help you write your college essay.
Here you can see that a well-written story:
1.) begins with a hook (lower left corner);
2.) includes facts (real ones, not alternatives :);
3.) adds tension by creating a mystery or raising a question to keep the reader engaged;
4.) puts things in context, such as a geographic location or a time frame;
5.) moves the story along by telling what happened, using action verbs and detail. Take the reader into the scene of the story.
6.) concludes with a powerful ending that resolves something.
