The Basic Plot Outline

2. An internal response : The protagonist's inner reaction to the initiating event, in
which the protagonist sets a goal or attempts to solve a problem.
3. An attempt : The protagonist's efforts to achieve the goal or alleviate the problem.
Several attempts, some failed, may be in an episode.
4. An outcome : The success or failure of the protagonist's attempts.
5. A resolution : An action or state of affairs that evolves from the protagonist's success
or failure to achieve the goal or alleviate the problem.
6. A reaction : An idea, an emotion, or a further event that expresses the protagonist's
feelings about the success or failure of goal attainment/problem resolution or that relates
the events in the story to some broader set of concerns. (Vacca and Vacca 1996, 257)
