  • Plot (definition)
    • Plot is the organized pattern or sequence of events that make up a story. Every plot is made up of a series of incidents that are related to one another.
  • 1. Exposition
    • This usually occurs at the beginning of a short story. Here the characters are introduced. We also learn about the setting of the story. Most importantly, we are introduced to the main conflict (main problem).
  • 2. Rising Action
    • This part of the story begins to develop the conflict(s). A building of interest or suspense occurs.
  • 3. Climax
    • This is the turning point of the story. Usually the main character comes face to face with a conflict. The main character will change in some way.
  • 4. Falling Action
    • All loose ends of the plot are tied up. The conflict(s) and climax are taken care of.
  • 5. Resolution
