6.2.11 StudyExplore Essay Writing: Narrative

Study Sheet


This study sheet will help you to write a rough draft of the writing assignment that you will revise later on. Answer the following questions as you work through your study to build a strong and successful narrative.

Your Assignment:

Write a short story starring one character from Macbeth. In your story, you’ll let your character hear a prediction about the future and, like Macbeth, go way overboard trying to make the prediction come true. 

You will . . .

  • Write a narrative with a strong introduction, well-developed body, and a conclusion that naturally follows from what has been experienced over the course of the writing.
  • Introduce the situation and characters by using techniques such as dialogue and description.
  • Use a variety of techniques to sequence events so that they create an organized whole.
  • Use digital media to add interest to a presentation.

Preparing to Write Your Story

Use the questions below to brainstorm ideas for your story. Fiction writing isn’t as straightforward as essay writing, so it’s O.K. if you change your mind about some of your answers later.

1. Choose a character from Macbeth. What does he or she want most? What are his or her flaws? Base your answers on evidence from the play and use your imagination to fill in any details.

2. Find a horoscope that may prompt your character to take action. Look for a prediction that will push your character to act on his or her desires, flaws, or both. What is the text of the horoscope?

3. When and where will your story be set?


4. How will you present the horoscope in your story?

5. What other characters will you include in your story?

6. What will your main character do after reading or hearing the prediction?

7. How will your main character’s choices lead to conflict? What major challenge will your main character face near the end?

8. What will you do to create suspense in your story?

Writing Your Story

9. (OPTIONAL) Write the beginning and the inciting incident of your story. Show what your character is doing when he or she reads or hears the prediction.

10. (OPTIONAL) Write the rising action of your story. Show what your character does as a result of the prediction and what conflicts come about because of these actions.

11. (OPTIONAL) Write the climax of your story. Show how the character’s choices lead to a final conflict.

12. (OPTIONAL) Write the resolution of your story. Show how everything ends up as a result of your character’s actions.

13. Combine your answers from questions 8 to 12 into a whole story, adding details and smoothing out any awkward patches as you go. (If you chose to skip questions 8 to 12, simply write the story here. You’ll need to check afterward to make sure you’ve hit the main elements of story structure.)

14. Create or find three illustrations to pair with your story. Write captions for them to show how they relate to your work.
