I'm currently developing an idea for a new novel. I'm excited about it, however, I seem to have come up against a wall. The basic idea is that our main character, Lita, finds herself shipwrecked on an island in the middle of the pacific and finds and ancient civilization. They are primitively advanced (think Atlantis), and highly secretive. I'm still working on how they've kept the Island hidden from modern satelites, I'll probably just turn back the clock a few decades. Anyway, I have numerous subplots, but I can't seem to come up with a major plot. Obviously, a large part would be Lita trying to find a way home and getting to another character. However, it feels like it needs more. Maybe the island is in danger, something that Lita can help with. Otherwise, it all seems kind of pointless. I have a few ideas about someone trying to overthrow the leader or maybe something supernatural, but I'm trying to stay away from the latter. There are a few 'magical' elements to the island, but it's more in herbal and natural remedies and the like. Anyway, I guess what I'm asking is for a chance to maybe bounce some ideas around with a few of you. I don't necessarily need detailed suggestions, just a direction to sort of head in. Once I can start asking myself questions, I can start answering them. It's just getting that little push. So, any tips? ideas? anything? It will be much appreciated.
