Answer by Wasabi
All that you described is what happens in the story, but you never really say what the story is about.
Also…what’s the point of the castle? Does that play a major roll in the story? Is the MC some kind of princess and that makes a difference in the story? You want to state that if it’s true.
Example of how to explain what your story is about:
Sent back through time by a magical diary, an orphaned princess must rescue the diary’s owner in order to return home.
>>See? Simple. You know:
who the mc is.
what she is…an orphan and a princess…so the castle idea fits
she finds a magical diary that forces her into an adventure (all stories force the mc into an adventure)
she must do something to save herself (come home).
As is…your definition is too wordy and doesn’t really say what your story is about.
