Hey, I just joined these forums. I've been planning a comic called Para for around four or five years now, and while in some ways it seems like I have a detailed, intricate, full six-arc story planned out, in reality each story arc is more like a shell, with a beginning and (sometimes) an ending. I'm considering giving up on putting things off, and just starting the comic already, but I don't think I can proceed until everything is sorted out, at least in the first arc. I don't even know if I'll be able to do it, but I at least want to try. Can anybody give me advice on how to fill the gaps and get from point A to point B? Or can anyone give suggestions about what should happen in the story? Here's what happens: A girl named Tara, who goes by Para, is diagnosed with schizophrenia because she sees ghosts. She dreams of being a paranormal detective, and one day as a teenager she meets a young boy named Norm, who's really a stranded alien trapped in a human body. He has knowledge of alien computer programming, but not anything earthly, because he's been spending his six years as a human collecting knowledge about earth. He also isn't telling Para everything about how he got to earth, as he has a criminal past. Para wants to solve a mystery, and find out where the team of aliens that brought Norm to earth went, or if any other aliens came looking for him. How do I go from there to them confronting an actual alien? What means of investigation could they use if Norm can't even program an earth computer? They live in New York, so checking records of abandoned children with undocumented parents would be difficult and might not yield usable results.
