I know that sounds harsh.
But the Master himself said that. Yes, Stephen King. What that means is this: don’t fall into the honey trap of the subplot. Keep the reader focused. Keep the map. Keep them engaged and keep them on Yellow Brick Road.
You have a story to keep. Tell the story.
Make the subplot a stand alone story. Don’t frustrate your purpose and main plot by chasing the written White Rabbit.
