I recently created a post about the dangers of overcomplicating sci-fi and fantasy, but this post goes into amazing detail on what to do to avoid overcomplicating AND the difference between that and a complex story. A complex story is a good thing, but there’s a chance you add too many plot elements, neglecting the story. Happy reading, and stick around for a writing update this weekend!
