9.02 Writing P1 and P2

I’m working on a English exercise and need support.

Part1: When you get ready to write your play, even a short one, it is important to think about each scene you use. It’s time to begin planning out your story. If you still aren’t sure of what your conflict or plot will be, scroll down to find some idea-generating questions. By now, you should have your complete story idea and characters all worked out, so take a few minutes now to write the story and characters. (Basically, you are now just writing your script and characters and everything below within this part 1 is just to help you.)

  1. Describe your exposition. In one to two paragraphs, describe a scene that introduces your characters, your setting, and the main conflicts in your story. You should have an internal conflict for your protagonist — and possibly an external conflict as well.
  2. Describe your inciting incident. In one paragraph, describe the event that causes your protagonist to begin his or her adventure.
  3. Describe some of your rising action. Write a list of three events that build up to the climax of your script. Don’t forget to include your supporting characters if you have them.
  4. Describe your climax. In one paragraph, describe what will happen in the climax of your script.
  5. Describe your falling action. In one to two paragraphs, describe what happens after the climax. Does your protagonist get what he or she wants? Does the antagonist get defeated? How?
  6. Describe your resolution. In one to two paragraphs, describe how everything works out in the very end. Remember to show how your characters changed because of their journey.

Idea-Generating Questions for those who need them

If you still are not sure what goal or what conflict your protagonist has, here are a few more questions to get you thinking:

  • What if your protagonist had a secret that he/she didn’t want anyone to find out — but someone did?
  • What if your protagonist discovered something terrible about either a friend or enemy — what will he/she do?
  • What if your protagonist discovered something about him or herself that will change his or her life? What will he/she do?
  • What if your protagonist has to make a decision that will change his or her life? How will he/she decide?

Part 2: Now it’s time to write your play with dialogue for the story you have created, simple. Please make sure it is all well thought out and the dialogue is clear, no spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors should be present.
