Well I'll get right to it. The plot of my novela currently has a gaping hole in it, why? I'll explain. Having written my plot and started the writing of the book I realized how incredibly cliched one part of it was. I realized I had resorted to the evil in the land-needs to destroy/find mystical item (in my case a Sacred Helmet)-peace restored kind of plot, which as I'm sure you all know is very over used. So now I must think of another quest for the MC to embark on whilst also including the plot points I've planed. I'm in the process of thinking of an alternative, but I'd be really grateful to hear any suggestions you guys have. It is set in Anceint Greece. The state of Thebes is in a civil war and one of the leaders sends the MP on this 'quest' that will insure that he will win the war. He has to travel through the rest of Greece. On the way he needs to meet new people. Any ideas?
