Developing Subplots

Duration: 2 hours

Subplots can add a layer of intrigue to a novel. However, a weak subplot may be swamped by the main plot and fail to be noticed. If a subplot adds little to the story then it may be completely redundant. Be careful though, if you include too many subplots it can become confusing for the reader. With this course, you will learn to decide if a subplot will be important to your story or not, the type of subplot to use, where they come from, the act of developing and writing subplots and more.
