Question description

Compose a short story about a quest or dream that a young person sets out to fulfill.  The quest or dream should be one that might occur in everyday life(rather than one involving extraordinary circumstances.)  Use first person point of view, but make the narrator older and wiser than he or she was at the time of the quest. 

Make an Outline and then refer to it for your writing using these steps:

1.  Identify a story idea:  fiction story that can be inspired by an event in your life, but that your not just writing a memoir.

2.  Consider your audience and purpose:  It should have a broad message or theme.  Choose a ton that will be effective in demonstrating your theme.

3.  Establish a setting:  Where does the story take place?  Is the time of year or time of day important?

4.  Develop characters:  Create one or two main characters and a couple of supporting characters.  Try to create complex and evolving characters.  Develop the plot or sequence of events that will make up the action.  The short story should have a conflict, complications, climax, and resolution. 

I need an outline for the story and the actually story.
