Beginning, middle, and the end is easily defined as the three parts that make up a story or a diagram. Many elements must be included in the beginning, middle, and end, and when they are all put together, you have a complete story or a diagram. As the below chart beginning-middle-end example suggests, 'The Beginning' will set the mood for the reader; will it be happy and exciting, dark and mysterious, or silly and entertaining? A good beginning makes you want to read more. 'The Middle' is where we reach the climax or turning point of the story. If the middle is good, it will start the reader thinking about how the story will end. 'The End' will keep the reader thinking about the story long after it is finished. A great ending leaves the reader feeling satisfied.
