Well just a few tidbits of my novel so far, It's about a Spanish war against a mythical cult and there are characters that I want to have a great significance to the story, But I have a specific form of how I want things to be. I want it to have a prologue, (already done) part I, part II, and part III with an epilogue. Now I'm in the middle of part I and I need some advice on how to organize the characters' story building. I tell about two men who are victims and then I tell about another character who I plan to have a very meaningful presence but what is the best way to organize these characters lives. I usually plan out everything from beginning to end before I write but this time I plan on telling so much because I want this story to be very long. So I only planned out the biggest points in the story and I'm working from there.. What do you guys think? Another note, it's a fantasy so mysterious things do happen but is there any way not to put it so cheesy like "we must kill the witches before our souls are damned!" Or "I know how to time travel now!" ?
