Well, the first step was figuring out that a good story has NOTHING to do with the plot. Only a superficial understanding of stories reduces a good one to its plot. A good story has GOOD characters, GOOD conflicts, and GOOD themes. In other words, interesting characters, meaningful conflicts, and relevant themes. The plot is an emergent unfurling/entangling of those things.
there is such a thing as a character driven story, but a story without a plot, even a thin one, is not a story. You can't even call it a soap opera.
