All I know so far is that I want my leading heroine to be a werewolf. But other than that, I am having some trouble with the plot. I just have a few questions that will help me brainstorm. 1. I can't decide whether I want to make the werewolves a secret or not? What do you think? What are the pros and cons of keeping them a secret or making their existence known to humans? 2. I don't know if I want to include other supernatural creatures in the story? Would it make it seem more vibrant and realistic with more paranormal elements? Will it seem odd for werewolves to be the only paranormal creature in the world? 3. I don't know if I should set the story in modern America as realistically as possible, or make an alternate reality. (For example, The Hunger Games is set in an alternate version of the United States). Should I go for stark realism as a setting or make an alternate fictional version of the U.S.? 4. What occupations would a young adult werewolf have? She's 19 years old. What job do you think a 19-year old, African-American, female werewolf would have? Initially I was going to make her a mechanic but I don't know. 5. What werewolf tropes do you hate reading about? What do you like about werewolves? Is there an aspect of them that you haven't seen explored all that much that you would like to read?
