Story Plot and Sequence Worksheets

What is a Story Plot Sequence?

Plot sequence refers to the order of events in a narrative or creative writing. This way, you can make stories in any form such as told, sung, written, or filmed. Plot specify the story such as the way of story creation, its unfolds, and moves in time. Plot sequence indicates imaginary characters and events. You will find them in novels, short stories, and other writings. The plot is a piece of plan or core story of fiction. Good fictional reading needs a better understanding of events sequence in the plot. Start your writing style from the middle and then to the ending if narrator or storyteller want to start it at the beginning of the plot. Authors don't write stories in sequence and events in sequence. Perhaps, authors want to start a story at the most exciting moment. They may move that moment towards the middle or end of the plot. They can describe the leading source of that exciting moment by going back. Sometimes authors leave the ending of story on reader's opinion. Keep your mental notebooks open for the event list and their sequence while reading story or novel's passage. Consider important words and phrases that will help you in finding which came first, second, etc.
