For Purposes of Fiction, What is Plot?

An idea is not a story. A first draft is not a story. A moral is not a story. A character is not a story. A theme is not a story. A plot--now, that's a story! So where do I get me one? You might ask. At your writing desk. Because plots don't exist. They can't be shopped for or ordered on-line. They are coaxed into being. They develop. They grow in the course of the writing.
