PlotEdit

Plot thesaurus- A list of plots

A plot, or storyline, is the events and actions of a story.

plots are made out of situations, such as those listed in the Story situation thesaurus.


The majority of genre fiction follow a basic plot structure called the three act structure. it consists of three acts as follows:

  • act 1 is the setup. This act includes the protagonist's initial situation.Then something happens that causes the protagonist to commit to a concrete goal.
    *act 2 the first goal is struggled with and brought to resolution. the protagonist commits to a second concrete goal, beginning act 3
    *act 3 the second goal is resolved and the story is brought to closure.

this same formula is called the five act structure by calling the opening and close acts.
