  3. The plot of the story is just basically what is happening in the story. The main idea. So for instance, in Harry Potter (the first one), the plot of the story is Harry being thrust into this new and magical world, and then him finding out all of these things about his life. BEcause of his past, he and is friends set out on a journey to defeat Lord Voldemort and find the Sorcerer's stone.
    The mood of a story is something such as sad, happy, joyful. So again for Harry Potter, you could say the mood was meloncholic (watch my spelling).

    I hope this helps.

  4. Plot is more than just the main idea. It's the series of things that happen and the order in which they happen. Plot includes setting, characterization, conflict, rising action, climax, resolution.

    Mood is definitely connected with emotion -- it's primarily connected with how the author feels about his subject/idea/story/characters. The author then relays the mood to the reader.
