To be honest, what I have is pretty incoherent narriative-wise. For some reason, I envisioned this more of a televisoon series, rather than a book. Its pretty much a survival series about a teenager (17) trying to survive. So, a lot of the plot is based on the MC traveling (in which the plot leads the MC to travel and find civilization), and there's all kinds of things on the way to the destination. Zombies, hungry animals, mutated dogs, evil towns, , etc... He befriends a dog, a girl that becomes his main love, a sorta vampire-ish character....Its kinda hard chop the different sidequests into bits. I have each 'sidequest' or 'episode' already bulleted. Would it be easier to write a chapter for each seperately on its own, or do them in order like a regular book? The other thing is the conclusion: I'm thinking of splitting into 2 books: The first ends with a cliffhanger where we see the protagonist having to rescue the girl while in jail, with the only hint of success being blood on the back page (its written as if it was a recap of events in case he does not survive). Would that piss people off seeing a conclusion like that? The 2nd ending is completely unknown.....I have no idea how to explain it. I want to come up with something poetic to the protagonists life that makes him the perfect person to lead the world back to civilization (effectively making him some form of messiah)...but it doesn't really explain why the world went to shit. I thought of using aliens, but then I could only think of some kind of war to unite humanity, which sounds real stupid to me. I was also thinking about an accidental experiment, or a war that its consequence led to many secret projects out-of-the-hat and exposed.......Its frustrating.... Should I not start really writing this up until I have a real ending, or just write it anyway and worry about the real ending later? Thanks!
