Plot vs Narrative ThreadPlot refers to the main flow of a story. An event happens that triggers another event. A problem occurs that a protagonist must resolve. Such events connect to drive a story forward. A narrative thread occurs when characters aren't aware of the entire plot. This allows an audience or reader to know more about the plot than the protagonist or supporting characters. Characters may make mistakes or fail to grasp opportunities as they are missing information. This allows for interesting and believable stories. A plot may contain many narrative threads.
