    Book setup questions

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by GaMeFreakJ, Jun 14, 2019 at 6:26 PM.

    Hello Guys!

    * I don't know if this is the right thread for this type of questions, sorry if this is wrong : s

    Okay: I got a question as to how to the layout of an idea.

    First off: The story:
    Fiction - Fantasy world - medieval (ish)

    intent/ design:
    A girl (14y - protagonist) turns out to be very good at (in?) maths and physics in primary school.
    (20y) She goes to the capital of the country and designs the first aircraft model.
    (21y) Begin's her engineering time designing new aircrafts after her study.
    Continues to invent new futuristic ideas with: home / ships and transport.

    But then the war comes...

    Question 1: Is it a good idea to make this into a war story? (your opinion if you personally would do it)
    Question 2: When should this war start? (25% / 50 %? )
    Question 3: Can she turn out to be a vanguard warrior?
    Question 4: Does this look interesting or is it overused?
    Question 5: Any short adds as to how to make this more interesting?

    Hi GameFreak,
    The trouble with answering any of your question is: If we do, it's not really your story anymore.
    You obviously have ideas already so go ahead and write the story how YOU want, you're more likely to invest in it and write a better story that way.

    The initial premise sounds interesting so I would turn the questions back on you: Do YOU think it would make a good war story and be interesting?

    All the best with it!

    Well, as a beginning writer it's easy to turn it into a war because I have no clue to make a book without it.
    I want to try it without the war but then my word count becomes stuck at 20/30k words.
    So to expand the story with a big war that has begun it's easy to finish/go on with it.

    However! Yes, I still think that a war story could work with this idea.
    So, thanks for the advice kind Sir!
    I will do my best ; D
