The exposition is the introduction to the characters. This is a crucial time in the plot because it makes or breaks the story. The inciting incident or conflict is when the main problem of the story is introduced. The rising action is the building up of the conflict. The rising action is usually the bulk of a story. The climax is the big moment or turning point of the story. The falling action or denouement is the action after the climax that leads to the resolution. The resolution is when the conflict or inciting incident is resolved.
