Why is a good plot important to a story?
A plot is an integral part of any story. It is the sequence of events that happen, how they happen, and why they happen. It's a sequence of events that are usually connected by cause-and-effect relationships. Some stories are made up entirely of this sequence, with no other elements.
The plot can be summarized in a single sentence that includes all the important information about it: "Mowgli stays with the pack for years and then leaves to find his own kind." This sentence tells us what happens in the story, who it happens to, and why it happens.
How is a story plot constructed?
In order to have a story, you need a plot. A story is just a plot that has been drawn out in more detail. The most basic part of constructing a plot is figuring out the protagonist and antagonist.
A protagonist is the main character in the story who struggles with some sort of problem or issue to overcome. An antagonist is usually the person or thing that is trying to prevent them from overcoming this challenge. It could be anything from an outside force like weather, an illness, or an injury; or it could be another person such as a boss at work who wants their employees to work too many hours for too little pay.
The next step in constructing your plot would be determining why these two characters are opposing each other and how they will interact with one another throughout the story.
What is the classical story arc structure?
The story arc structure is a common narrative structure that follows the rise and fall of a protagonist. The story begins with a sense of tension or conflict, which then gradually subsides to show the protagonist living in some sort of peace. This is followed by an increase in tension and conflict, which leads to a climax. The climax is followed by a conclusion where the protagonist finds resolution for their problems.
