5 Arthur Conan Doyle From a family who were big into the Arts. He did not like rules. He went to school to become a doctor, but always loved to write. Dr. Joseph Bell, one of his instructors, influenced his character of Sherlock Holmes. Wrote a novel about Sherlock Holmes that people loved, so he then wrote a series of short stories about him to be published in a magazine. People loved the stories so much that Doyle could not stop writing them.

7 Sherlock Holmes Famous for his logical reasoning, his disguises, and his use of forensics to solve cases. Dr. Watson is his best friend and working partner who narrates all the Sherlock Holmes stories. Holmes was not very nice, lied often, and was messy, but always seemed to notice what others didn’t which allowed him to solve cases. A lot like Dr. House.

13 Exposition This usually occurs at the beginning of a short story. Here the characters are introduced. We also learn about the setting of the story. Most importantly, we are introduced to the main conflict (main problem).

14 Rising Action This part of the story begins to develop the conflict(s). A building of interest or suspense occurs.

15 Climax This is the turning point of the story. Usually the main character comes face to face with a conflict. The main character will change in some way.

16 Falling Action All loose ends of the plot are tied up. The conflict(s) and climax are taken care of.

17 Resolution The story comes to a reasonable ending.
