Hello. I have always had a hard time wrapping my head around planning for subplots and I wanted to ask if anyone thinks they are necessary for a good book or not? I always just plot my plotline and I don't specifically detail subplots. Perhaps I'm being too linear here, but all the details I have in my stories are weaved into the main plotline. I'm sure there are subplots, because stuff happens to the characters such as romantic moments, etc that don't really matter to the story itself, but I never really plot these things seperately, they just... happen. Is there something wrong with my process? Is planning a plot in a linear fashion bad? I can kind of pick out subplots in books I read and in my writing, but they just seem to be part of the plot to me, not some seperate entity. Can you please enlighten me, guys and gals? Thank you!
