Here is my question-how many subplots are too many? I'm trying not to overcrowd my story, but I want it to be multilayered and leveled too and the ideas keep coming. Granted, many of my sub plots influence one another, are the result of another or mysteriously tied to another one, but at the moment I think I have like 9 subplots-am I on overkill? I don't know...
Anyway I need to have this complete plot outline, story arc, subplot map and scene guide etc finished by this weekend since next week I have off and I need to do all of my hardcore writing. Though Im in a wierd way back at the begining I still feel as though I can write this book before summer is over-I mean write this version of it, I've really been writing this story for two years now. Anyway if Stephenie Meyer could write Twilight in 3 months-I think after two years of writing The Seven Sisters Brandywine-why not me?
Also I just got a super special package from the awesome Joanne!!! She sent me arcs of
Crazy Beautiful, Lauren Baratz-Logstead
SHIVER, Maggie Stiefvater
Im hearing such great things about Shiver and Maggie Stiefvater. I immediately opened the book after tearing open my package and the next I knew I was 30 pages in, its just that engrossing. I had to stop because I'm on a plotting mission today, but I'll be picking this back up soon.
Anyway, super excited for So You Think You Can Dance-also...I'm seeing No Doubt and Paramore tomorrow :-)
