The Narrative Arc is a structure used to organize a story. It includes five parts: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Exposition is the beginning of the story where the characters, setting, and main conflict are introduced. Rising action includes all of the incidents in the story that build up to the climax. The climax is the turning point of the story when the main conflict reaches its highest point before the resolution. Falling action occurs after the turning point where the action begins to wrap up. The resolution is when all of the questions in the story have been answered and the problems have been solved.
