1) Exposition/Introduction: This part introduces the characters and their personalities.

2) Rising Action: This part helps recognize and reveal the conflicts of the characters to another character or to himself. This also shows the progression of the story.

3) Climax: This Part shows suspense (Turning point) In the novel that suprises the reader.

4) Falling Action or Resolution: this part demonstrates how the character had done accordingly in the rising action. (If we have a rising action we have the falling action.)

Major plot elements would be:

  • Character
  • Conflict
  • Complication
  • Crisis-Climax
  • Change
  • Resolution

There is, however, another school of thought that involves 8 parts of a plot:

  • Point of entrance
  • exposition
  • defining event
  • rising action
  • crisis
  • falling action
  • denouement
  • closure

To be technically correct, a plot can be generalized as "whats going to happen" in a story. All stories are different, and some will have more or less plot points than 5.

You just write what happened in the story. The "Stages" are just a fancy way of organizing the action in the story's plot. If you write what happened in each part of the story, you will cover the stages.

Exposition is the setting of a story.

The plot is just what happens in the story. It has elements in it but there's no formula like you seem to be looking for.

Plot is simply what happens in the story. You don't need examples, you just need to go read or watch a movie -- pretend you're explaining what happens to a friend and you'll have the plot. Here's a link to explain more about plot and plot elements.

No. The plot is the events that happen in a story. The setting is where those events take place. The plot can effect the setting and the setting can effect the plot. They are separate, but important elements of story.

The 7 elements are: -plot -setting -tone -style -point of view -character -theme

Narrative elements include the setting of the story (time and date), characters and plot.
