This may sound strange, but I've had an idea for the longest time to create a story about a young boy who finds out about a person who had been kidnapping children and turning them into, for lack of a better word, cyborgs. So like any child protagonist, he decides to find and stop them. With the help of his friends of course. However, things don't quite meet his expectations. He has no idea who or where the "villain" is. There are no "minions" for him to fight. Also, unlike the comics and cartoons he's seen, children traveling to far away places alone is a bit more strenuous than he thought. All in all, this story is a more "realistic" take on what would happen if some children decided to be heroes and save the day. I actually plan on telling the second and third half of the story from the point of view of the two other kids he was traveling with. The second half set in the "villain's lair" and being told from the female characters view. The third and last part being told from the view of the main character's best friend's point of view in which he particularly highlights the main character's naive obliviousness of how the world works. My problem is that most people enjoy something more action packed when they read adventures and I'm not sure how much people would actually be interested in this. Does anyone have any tips on how to make a generally actionless story a bit more interesting?
