Remember that cave on our first trip?
When you held my hand and looked into my soul?
We should have stayed there.
What is a sub plot? A sub plot is when an author gives a secondary Character life. The character has purpose, his own dreams, goals, interest, dislikes. Every person in your primary storyline needs to have their own wants & desires. If not than get rid of them, they are useless. Treat each page as a valuable realestate...everything residing in that space has a job:
DO something ***Be careful not to turn a sub plot into a side story.
***Don't forget to make a clear connection between their sub plot and the primary plot. *** It has to compliment or amplify the primary theme/s.
*** Use as a refreshing relief in between main characters drama.
