We identified the elements of a good story and Ronin wrote a story:
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Louanne. She was six years old and lived in Murfreesboro. She liked to ride horses. She had one horse named Bluejeans. (setting the stage) Louanne was riding Bluejeans in the yard and she fell off of the horse. Bluejeans ran away. (conflict) Louanne's mom and dad looked for the horse and they found Bluejeans at a neighbor's house. (rising action) They used a truck to bring Bluejeans home because he was limping. They took Bluejeans to see a vet and then he died. (climax) Louanne felt frustrated and mad so she bought a dog at a pet store. (denouement)
