Q is for: Quandry

Quandaries make great plots. They are less fun in real life. I’m in the middle of one right now called the “is the strange number texting me someone I knew back in high school, someone I used to know in the dorms, or does a total stranger somehow know my name and my interests and if so what else do they know and how concerned should I be” quandary. This would make much better fiction (or a prompt, for that matter) than it does real life. Quandaries are the first component of a plot: what, why, who and where are all great foundations for a plot or for subplot. How is also great. In fact, I’ll be going through all of my subplots later and asking myself whether each of them has a question impeded into them that can be answered and, therefor, resolved. Yay, projects!
