Here are some more building blocks for creative writing.
Climax – the turning point of a story
Conflict – a struggle between two opposing forces: person vs person, God/fate, society, nature.
Dialogue – Direct speech between characters in a literary work.
Falling action – the results or the effects of conflict in a story.
Flashback (or analepsis) – The introduction of material into the narrative that has happened earlier in the story. E.g. a character remembering an event or conversation from their past. (This technique can be used to include information that is outside the known storyworld in order to save narrative space).
Genre – a type or category that a literary work belongs to: romance/horror/science fiction.
Interior Monologue (Streams of consciousness) – a technique used to convey the thoughts and feelings of a character directly to the reader.
Rising action – the development of conflict and complications in a literary work.
Suspense (withholding information) – a technique that keeps the reader guessing what will happen next.
Theme – the underlying main idea behind a literary creative work.
