Mini-Quiz: Elements of Fictional Stories

by Ron Kurtus (updated 6 June 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why are interesting characters so important to a story?

Interesting characters make for interesting reading

In realty, a good plot is much more important that characters

You need interesting characters to have a point-of-view.

2. Must a plot be logical?

No, because character development and setting make up the story

No one really knows, because most plots are illogical

Yes, because otherwise the reader will not believe the story

3. What point-of-view is used in most stories?

Most have no point-of-view to be politically correct

The omniscient or third-person voice is most common

Most fiction stories are biographies in the first person

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Fiction Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
