Have you used Subplots while writing your Novel? If you haven’t, you are missing an important addition to add tension, suspense, and dimension to both your story and your main character, who is constantly facing obstacles. A subplot can directly increase the difficulty for the Protagonist in the main plot. It can increase the stakes for the main character by working against the goals of the main character.
A subplot, is used to add depth to your main story. By using a subplot, you will keep the reader interested and curious of the outcome.
Add Secondary Characters. All secondary characters have a story, either a past connection to the Protagonist or a present one by appearing at an inopportune time, and causing friction. Imagine the possibilities available for you to create tension and suspense while your main character is trying unsuccessfully to find a resolution to all obstacles.
For a romance novel, try a love triangle involving the Protagonist, who must make an almost impossible decision, after the arrival of the secondary character.
For mystery, add a character who is the main suspect in a murder.
All subplots stories should run parallel to the main plot interweaving difficulties with the obstacles your Protagonist is trying to overcome. End the subplots before you end the story.
NOTE: Keep in mind that the Main Plot begins and ends the Novel.
Keep on writing: Paula
