The fundamentals parts of a story are::
- A character wants something,
- but something stands in their way.
- They take action to get it,
- which brings a response.
- Eventually, they get what they want or don't, and the story ends.
But as writers, we get to decide the pace.
It doesn't have to be action focused. It can be about the poetry, the senses, and the experience.
As long as your reader wants to participate, then take them on that journey you have inside of you.
