Hey guys, So there's this problem I have with my novels, due to which I've only finished one out of the 100s I've started. You could maybe call it writers' block, but I see it more as an issue with writing too fast. See, I have a tendency to get the action rolling by page 1, then have the MC unraveling clues and stuff by page 20. I'm definitely a plot-driven person, but I feel like events just happen one after the other (I'm sure being a journalist has worsened this habit of mine). What happens as a result: I'm into the main heat by page 30 or so and the novel ends up being extremely underdeveloped. I have problems making things tie in. I also have problems with subplots. What are some ways to use subplots in a way to effectively advance the plot while also not boring readers? Should the subplot tie into the MC's plot/dilemma, or just serve as secondary character development? Sorry - I'm no newbie to writing and I know I should know this stuff...but...I don't.
