Plotting Short Fiction

This was a neat article I stumbled across on plotting short fiction:  http://twowritingteachers.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/plotting-short-fiction/

The author shows a helpful chart that she uses to help map her stories.  Specifically, she discusses how to work out scenarios.  What I really liked what how she emphasizes the idea that "plot happens."  The best scenes are created when you just let the characters react to each other or the scenario.

I thought it might be a useful resource if anyone happens to be stuck on their story.  Maybe to help work through the writer's block...?
