I just started a little pet project, trying to write my first novel. I have a sketchy prologue written, but its not that great. Its set in the fictional city of Four Lakes, Washington, at a high school called Four Lakes Academy. It recounts the story of Simon Osgood ("Oz" for short), and how he discovers he has this strange condition called The Breed. I don't exactly know the details of what The Breed is yet, or how I can lengthen my plot. Right now, it is written in the perspective of Simon on his deathbed, finally revealing the truth to what happened during his four years at Four Lakes. All I know is I'm shooting for a psychotic thriller, with blood, lots of it. I'm just looking for a good way to make this disease The Breed fit into my plot. Any help would be great!!
