“Plot is a chain of cause-and-effect relationships that constantly create a pattern of unified action and behavior. Plot involves the reader in the game of “Why?”
Ronald B Tobias, 20 Master Plots: And How to Build Them

“Hemingway said write first and then take out all the good stuff and what’s left is story. (By “good stuff” Hemingway meant all the material that the author has fallen in love with—not everything that was proper for the story.)”
