Subplots: they think it's their story
Look at the little infographic. (You can draw it out in your notebook, if you like.) Flesh out all those aspects of their story:

• What do they believe about the theme? How might they act on their beliefs?
• What events in their story will affect the main story as well?
Tomorrow we'll play with Detail. If you want to share what you invent, tweet me @WritersGreenHse. I'd love to hear.
