The Write Life for You: How Solid is YOUR Plot?

Becoming a Lifelong Learner of the Craft of Writing
By author, editor, educator Shon Bacon aka ChickLitGurrl™

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?
