if i read snow dogs & say the plot is about someone learning how to dog sled, then i missed the plot. the plot & foundation is first & foremost.
the plot is a young man who wants to find out who is real mother & father are- not some wild adventure in Alaska.
if i interpret the plot as learning about dogs, that is not the plot & my interpretations are going to be a bit severed. people interpret without getting the plot all the time.
there are subplots that run parallel & do not effect the main plot & there are subplots that do effect the main plot.
what do you think?
