LET'S WRITE A STORY ABOUT CAT.   ARE YOU READY?    LET'S GO!

LET'S START AT THE BEGINNING of our story.

Every story beginning needs a MAIN CHARACTER.
Cat can be our main character.

And every story beginning needs a SETTING.  A setting is a time and a place.
For this story, let's have the setting be "one dark night in the deep, dark woods."

Okay, now we  need a PLOT. for our story.
For this we need a PROBLEM.

Let's say that Cat's PROBLEM is that she can't sleep.
One dark night in the deep, dark woods, Cat couldn't sleep.

GOOD!  Our story has a  BEGINNING! 

But now our story needs a MIDDLE.
