Definition

One main object in storytelling is obviously the plot.

A plot tells a series of actions centered on a character (that can be human or not, individual or collective).

A story is made of one or several plots.

A joke is one plot, a movie can be many, and a TV series tells hundreds of plots.

How to write a standard plot

We can formalize ANY plot in one timeline in 3 “ACTS”:

PLOT
ACT I
Introduction
ACT II
Development
ACT III
Conclusion
 Beginning…  …middle…  …end.

If we detail more, we can now tell or analyze ANY story through the following 13 steps:

PLOT
ACT I
Introduction
ACT II
Development
ACT III
Conclusion
Exposition Catalyst + Goal Drama Question Process Process Process Crisis Climax Drama Answer

Advantage: if we can formalize one story like that, we can formalize many. So we are then able to build a story with 3, 5, 20 plots and more – without getting lost.

The plots we make can then be mixed into narrative architectures (see just later).
