Subplots are what I like to call the peanut butter and jelly to a PB&J. If the main story is the bread and we ate it alone, it would be a dull and dry sandwich.
Subplots are a secondary strand of the plot that is a supporting side story for any story or main plot. Subplots support the main story and sometimes the main characters or the sub characters. When one is wanting to develop a subplot, here are a few things to analyze
- Is there something going on in the main character or sub characters life that can take on a life of its own, yet can’t stand alone without the main story?
If so this is a good subplot. Let’s say for instance Mary is a suspect in murdering her best friend. But she’s also the sister of her best friends husband. Her double life is the subplot. Let’s go a step further and say that Mary is a detective who is well respected in her community who is working on a case about the abduction of a single mother whose husband is most likely the culprit. But Mary is also a contract killer.
- Is there a situation that is going on in the story that runs along with the main story?
If so, this is a good subplot. Insert your character into this situation. Make your character deal or solve this problem while solving their main problem, which is the main plot.
In order to create subplots, you have to first have built and created good characters. They need to be complex, have issues, have problems. Basically, they need to be human. You have to be able to pull something from them. Going through a divorce, a subplot could include emotional issues. Have abusive tendencies, you could create a subplot about this person abusing another character.
Another way is to pull subplots from the main story. If you had a story that was based off a woman getting over a heart break, you could include her now trying to be a single mother to a son who’s being rebellious, skipping school, having sex, being disrespectful. At the same time, her mother finds out she has cancer. She is then told that she has a new job where she is making three times what she’s currently making but the job is four states over. See the dilemma? The idea is to create conflict. So if you are struggling with sub plot development, you must create conflict within a situation or a character but make sure the characters are authentic, or the conflict won’t be true to your story or your character.
