Hi guys, this is my very first post on the forum and I'd like to shortly introduce myself before exposing my plot development issue. Firstly, I don't have solid background as a writer. Even though, I am currently writing a book about the Law of Attraction, I still consider myself a newbie . I am so full of ideas that it feels as if my head would explode at times. My main problem is that I'm impatient in life (I am working on this!) and I can barely keep my focus on something for too long. Maybe this is why I passionately leaped into researching data about my new book, which actually I intend to turn into book series (quite ambitious, right? ) before I have even finished the first one. Ok, now that we have cleared that I have mental disorder let's proceed to my plot development chaos. My first book is more like a pep talk which helps me speak my mind,be support for the people that are to read my book and reveal techniques I figured through my own experience. The novel that I wish to distend in trilogy (at least), however, requires solid knowledge in writing techniques, rich vocabulary and perfect grammar. I have never attended creative writing courses or have been an A-student in literature classes, and most of ALL - I'm not a native English speaker. Despite all that I don't feel like quitting on my goal and desire. I believe the best writers are the ones able to speak their mind and soul on a blank paper, being compelling in a way no course or seminar was able to teach them. Now, here is my plot issue... My story is meant to change an ancient Roman myth that has never been proven to be real event. My idea is to explore the bloodline of a Roman dynasty, change the order of the members and fit in the story of fictional characters and empire. It will be twisty, bloody and definitely sexy. My concern here, however, is if I would provoke the wrath of historians and Roman history admirers. Would my story be a breath of fresh air, breaking the chains of the well-known and tortured to death mythology or it will simply inspire judgement and critique for being so bold to interfere history? If anyone here has ever committed or undertaken such act of bravery, please be honest and speak your mind on that idea. Do you believe such concept would find its way to readers' interest? Should I speak to historians or experienced history writers? Should I sign up for a creative writing course? What kind of books shall I search for to enrich my vocabulary?... Or should I simply start writing and stop asking stupid questions? Thank you for your time and patience to read the thoughts and passions of a lost mind. I really hope though I will get some feedback as well.
