I definitely need to work on subplots. I’m so focused on the main story that I forget the minor characters have things that are happening to them while the heroine is doing her thing.
Writing minor characters is never really an issue for me, but breathing life into them is.
And I totally agree, having interesting subplots really adds a richness to the story that wouldn’t be there without them.
Note to self: don’t neglect the little people (the minor characters).
