What's the difference between theme and plot?
Theme is what the writer wants to make clear. Plot is what happens in the story
The theme is mostly one sentence and it is what the writer wants to make clear. The plot is what happens in the story (like a summary) and this can be more than one sentences.
Theme is the writer's message about life, whereas plot describes the main events and sequence of a story.
A key difference is that themes are often short and can be said in one sentence, whereas the plot of a story can be lengthy. Themes are a relationship between the story and life- essentially an extension of the story and how the events can be applicable in real life. Simply put, plots just describe the story.
Hope this helps!
