Hey! I asked some of my friends what they thought made a good story. A few said they like mysterious and complex plots. I guess a good example of this would be A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R Martin, who seems to be able to keep the reader constantly guessing as to what will happen. I also agree with this, it makes the reader want to keep reading. So anyway I'm currently about to start my first sci-fi novel, or novel for that matter. What im worried about is that my plot will be weak and predictable. So I wanted to ask what you all think makes a good complex and mysterious plot.
