I have been writing a novel and I am trying to follow what could possibly be a unique path with it. The goal is to keep the characters in the dark as to what they are doing. Essentially putting the lines of fate into the story. I have come up with a problem or two with this approach. My first question being, should I also keep the reader in the dark as to the over all plot of the book? If so how do I place at least some foreshadowing in there to keep the reader going? The second is that if keeping the reader in the dark as to the main antagonists is a bad idea, then how do I introduce the antagonists? Nothing I have written so far on the base storyline leads up to it, so I am seeing that an inclusion of things on the bad guys will be far out of place and put the reader off. I don't want to follow the standard switch off between the protagonists and antagonists between chapters. I want to follow a unique path with it. Any ideas will be helpful and greatly appreciated.
