Hi all,

so for assignment eight I have two nonfiction outlines done and finishing a fiction.  My question is do you give a general description for each hook, headings, conclusion?  I just want to make sure I did this correctly.

Yeah, see, I didn't answer because I didn't really understand the question.

For fiction, you need to let me know the main character, the pressure that pushes the main character to act, he/his actions...the repercussions of those action, and so on all the way to resolution. So I guess...yeah...I would want to know how that works out in the beginning, middle and end of your story...but I tend to think more in terms of what is making the character act, what does the character do, how does that change the situation...and then what does the character do...and so on all the way to resolution.
