Hello, First a little about my story, I am not a writer and this is my first attempt at a major writing project. I first came up with the idea for this story over 10 years ago when I was in high school and had to write a paper for an English Class. From this short story, I developed the same dream that a lot of young people have today; I wanted to create a video game. I was naive, I actually believed that if I came up with a good video game idea, that I would actually be able to get a company to buy the idea and create the video game. Now that I am older, I realize that I have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting a video game maker to buy my idea and story. So once I learned this fact, I pretty much gave up on the story but it always stayed in my mind. Finally a friend of mine has convinced me to try to continue with my idea and write it down in story form. So once it’s done, I don't know what I plan to do with it but I will worry about that after I have it written. Ok so here is what I have. The idea I have had in my mind for over 10 has a lot going on so I feel that for the novel to be worth reading and not be too quick, that I should split it up into different stories/books. I personally hate prequels. I always feel like a prequel is an author or movie maker trying to squeeze another penny out of a good story. So I think my first story/novel should start at the beginning. The problem I am having with this is when I came up with the idea for this story, the part which will be the first book was only a page long back story. I wrote it down so that I would have a solid base of where my character came from and what got him to his present location and state. But now, I am having a hard time trying to turn this one page into a book. What I do know is that the story is being told by the protagonist as though the events has already happened, like his telling us of the story. I have decided to do this so that he can kind of express wisdom and lessons learned as he looks back on the events. So what I really need help and advice with is, what are some ways to help me turn this one page back story into a story long enough to maybe publish as a book one day? I know how the story starts and how it ends but being that all this was originally a page long, I am having problems with in the "between". Any help or advice would be appreciated.
