I usually have a lot of ideas about characters, plot, how I want the story to start, how I want it to end, etc. But those individual scenes that “move the plot along”, it’s hard for me to figure out what those specific scenes should be, WHEN the scene should happen in the story, and WHERE the scene should take place. Then you have to factor in WHO is in what scene, who needs to be in this scene or that scene, etc. Like...there’s so many options. I’m a big picture person, like I can see an entire story at once in my head and write 10 pages that covers it, but dealing with the details has never been a strong suit of mine so evolving that 10 page story to a 300 page narrative...it’s so overwhelming to me. Short stories are my comfort zone, but I don’t want to rely on that. I just have no idea how to construct a novel. Every scene I would come up with outside of the things I already have in my head automatically to tell the story (enough for a shot story basically) feel like “filler scenes”, like they don’t need to be there. And I’m bad at “making up” those types of scenes to “move the story along” and pad things out. It feels forced. I’ll take any and all advice, personal advice, YouTube recommendations, etc, whatever advice you can give me. Thanks.
