Isn't there only something like 7 basic plots in storytelling. Sure you can mix and match but its all variations on the same theme(s).

I used to have a writing book from Writer's Digest that covered 24 different plots, some dating to the Greeks. As some of them dealt with the gods and mortals, only about a dozen are usually used in today's contemporary dramas.

Where do you find these sources????

These specificly, I know where to find the in general...
Well in my case, it was a book I once owned. But just do a Google search (or whatever search engine you choose) for 'basic plots', and you'll get about 35 million results.
