How Solid is Your Plot?

Every story should have a main plot; most stories have several sub-plots within the main plot.

What is a plot?

Plot refers to the pattern of events within a narrative or drama; these events culminate into the story’s resolution. The development of the events and how the main character(s) react to these events often give a story its meaning.

Most books that you read about plot will tell you that to have a solid plot, your story should have five components:

  • Conflict
  • Complications
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • Falling Action

Want to learn MORE about plot…and see how I tie the movie FATAL ATTRACTION to the five components?
