These five elements are the building blocks of story, and they are:
1. Action. What are your characters doing?
2. Dialogue. What are they saying?
3. Description. What are they seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling?
4. Inner Monologue. What are they thinking?
5. Exposition / Narrative. What other information does the narrator (IE you) want us to know?
