So, let’s think about the plot, what happens within your piece of writing; whether it is factual or fictional, there has to be a structure, and something which keeps people reading…

Think about this:

There are certain things most plots contain:

  • The Events: what happens
  • The Reason behind the events: Why it happens
  • The Triggers to the action: How it happens
  • The Extras: information to understand the story
  • The Complications; unexpected events which change the situation
  • The Climax: the exciting bits when everything changes, the turning point
  • The Solution: how it comes to an end, the outcome
