Hmm, yeah plot vs. sub-plot is something I struggle with a lot too.  Part of me feels like a more sub-plot based story is more grounded in reality, but a plot centered story probably makes for a better read.  Like, when I think about it, how often have I actually had a villain in real life?  Or when did I know exactly what I should be doing?  Have I ever really had to storm the castle?  Those kind of things might make for a great plot of a story, but that's it, it's a story.  Having more minor but more immediate sub-plots actually adds a bit of gravity for me, believe it or not, because that's more like a real thing.

I don't really know what to tell you.  Somebody will probably have a good analysis of what a story should be, but me, I just got more questions.  My only definite is that I always want to do more light-hearted chapters than serious ones.  Probably 60-40 lighthearted to serious.  Meh, probably 70-30.

Hope that the 2nd and 3rd ones in the series go great!
