Created a symbol that is appropriate for what it is symbolizing
Expanded the idea of the symbol so that you show many facets of it ( A mockingbird in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, was used because it was helpless and vulnerable and only brought joy and good feelings to people – a symbol of the situation of African American man, Tom Robinson living in a Southern town during the 1930’s and 40’s.)
Have a beginning, a middle and an end of in your short fiction – include exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution.

    This is an excellent diagram to let you know what is included in each part of a plot.

    What do you think should be included in the exposition?

    You'd be wise to work with this diagram and dive in. The more time you waste asking questions here, the less time you have to write your story.
