This may be a bit long but here it goes: Originally, I had this idea of writing a werewolf fantasy series. I had characters and backstories and a setting but no plot. I kept toying with different plots but couldn't figure it out. After a while, I realized it was because I could not make a good plot the way I wanted and use werewolves. For years I've been working with different story ideas with different supernatural creatures but have been unable to settle on one. I've also tried making my own but I like using pre-established ones better because my imagination tends to flow better that way. So now I'm just stuck. I don't want to use werewolves or vampires or zombies because they are overused. Faeries, dragons, and ghosts haven't worked for me either and I don't know what to do. I'm thinking now of using nephilim (angel-human hybrids) but don't want to make it a huge religious aspect. I'm not sure how to go about that. I think my main problem is that whenever I watch or read something, then I get influenced by it and end up botching my ideas. Does anyone else have this problem and know what to do about it? How do you develop a plot and conflict and where do you get inspiration?
