Home Forums Parent forum Introduction to Fiction The elements of fiction Re: The elements of fiction



While reading “Elements of fiction,” i came to realize that there is a lot of elements involved in fiction and what we (I) actually thought i knew. the main ones setting and plot are so thoroughly explained that i had myself going back to some stories and fitting them in to things i just read.
my question is:
must all fiction novels and stories have these specific elements in order it to be a spectacular fiction literature? or can some of the elements be kept out and be put into the work.
the reason i ask is because some short stories are so short its hard to say if all the elements can be found in the story, so will that be considered as a literature of fiction?
