Hi, I have a lot of concepts for the story I have been planning for a while filling up a lot of pages of ideas and notes but my problem seems to building a plot around the core concepts of the story, for example I have made many dummy characters to fit the story I want to write but nothing seems to click. so without further ado is this plot just not really coherant or is it worth my time in building it up further. It is based on a fantasy world that is ravaged by phenomenon called "rifts" which are basically huge black crevices that form in the world that act as portals to a place called to the abyss which is kind of my version of hell. these rifts leak energy into the world which is used to power machines when concentrated or fashioned into pills to boost strength etc with consequences by accelerating blood cell counts. these leaks in high dosages can cause death so what was a biblical moment when they first appeared granting strength and enhancing the world is now an epidemic. the main character I had planned is someone who was exposed to one of the rifts resulting in him and many other people being sucked into the abyss. here while choking in the realm the main and his brother are approached by a ghostly figure that offers an exchange to stay alive, the figure uses his brother body as fuel for the ritual branding the main rendering his brother a mere spirit ball only his soul remaining and casts them out possibly time has accelerated. his goal now is to restore his brothers body in a place called the garden were wishes are supposed to come true but nobody ever finds the place which acts as the counter to what lies in the abyss. in addition to he also on his journey meets new people and gets caught up in the mystery of the rift threat. that is it in barebones I suppose. feedback would be great and ideas if you have any on his back story or any input at all such as criticism or praise, thanks.
