Just as the title says, I'm having trouble developing the plot for one of my works. Some background info: it's a novel I wrote when I was sixteen, featuring a "star war" but with a more realistic cut, meaning there weren't aliens, robots and such, just humans against humans; and also I gave it a "historical flavour", meaning I wrote it as though I would write a newspaper article about, say, the Iraqi war (the war in Kosovo was going on at the time). The first draft, however, was not readable. Then I just stopped writing for a veery loong period, and just only recently I began writing again; I tried writing a few things, but it's not as easy as it was before, so I thought I would try to fix up my old papers so to make them readable, but that's just as difficult! All this goes for "war". I have a lot of material I could use to write something good out of it, but I just don't know where should I start from. So, any suggestions on how should I approach the matter?
