# Creating a Procedure with Parameters¶

Is there another way to make it easy to change the story, rather than creating a string and then splitting it into pieces? We can create a procedure with parameters and then pass in the input values when we call the procedure as shown below.

Creating a procedure with parameters makes it easy to customize the madlib stories without having to split a string. The split function is very useful when you read data from a file or from a website.

csp-17-5-1: What would be the value of lastName in witchStory given the following call to the procedure?

witchStory("Emily", "Smith", "girl", "2783 Main Street", "smell")

• Emily
• That is the value of firstName.
• Smith
• That is the value of lastName.
• girl
• That is the value of gender.
• 2783 Main Street
• That is the value of address.
• smell
• That is the value of verb.
