Can someone help me do some introspection? I know how stories make me feel, and I know that I like certain plotlines... it's just totally different from the perspective of the writer. There's a vague setting and a scattered bunch of ideas spinning around my head, but I have absolutely no idea what the point of the story is going to be. If it helps, I like reading hard science fiction as well as fantasy that has some kind of revelation or discovery as its theme. I also prefer characters becoming more than what they are at the beginning or fulfilling some kind of destiny. For this reason, tragedies and underdog stories of rebellion don't really move me. The Myers-Briggs test would label me intuitive. Maybe the difficulty of building a story that would satisfy this is just too much for me.
