Today we are going to write a story. A story has a beginning, a middle and an end. A story starts when something happens. A story starts with an inciting incident. An inciting incident is something that prompts action.
Have you ever had to explain how to do something? Like, how to play with a paper bag? Or how to pet a cat? Or how to become a cat? There are steps and sequences to follow.
Maybe the protagonist in your story gets a flat tire and their father is going to teach them how to change a tire. Or maybe your protagonist is blind like Akiko and she wants to explain how to fry eggs if you are blind. Or maybe you are a cat and you want to help humans become a cat.
No matter what process you want to explain to someone, you can teach them “how to” using these four steps.
