Every narrative has five elements that define and shape the narrative: plot, setting, character, conflict, and theme.
These elements are rarely stated in a story; they are revealed to the readers in the story in subtle or not-so-subtle ways, but the writer needs to understand the elements to assemble her story.
Written forms of narration include most forms of writing: personal essays, fairy tales, short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, autobiographies, histories, even news stories have a narrative.
Narratives may be a sequence of events in chronological order or an imagined tale with flashbacks or multiple timelines.
