Meet Plot, who keeps a story running and its events moving in the right order; Atmosphere, who can fill a scene with suspense; a cast of Heroes and Villains including Protagonist and Narrator; and chatty, talkative Dialogue. Plus tonnes of detail on the building blocks of narrative and what makes creative writing work.
