So I am pretty sure I have writer's block. I have a plot, awesome characters and all that stuff, but I just can't get the beginning written! I'm having the most terrible time with it. The basic gist of the setting is an alternative modern world, set here on Earth. Supernatural creatures exist 'out of the closet' so to speak. More specifically, it takes place in the PNW. The story is a young woman of Native American descent discovers that she is a Shaman, who has the power to shift into her totem animals, as well as have control over them. Her power comes out when she meets the Alpha of the werewolves in the Northwest. The vampire Family in the city she lives in tries to recruit her so they can, by extension, control the local lycanthrope population, so now she is stuck between the two races, one of which is trying to kill her and the other that is trying to control her. How in the world would you start that? i have tried several times to start when she meets the Alpha, but for some reason it just isn't working. I've been stuck for a couple of months on it.
