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.

Make the subplot a stand alone story. Don’t frustrate your purpose and main plot by chasing the written White Rabbit.

With Love & Ink,
