OKay, here's a plot that needs help with creation, hence plot creation. Okay, the idea is that a writer goes back to the year 1920, and writes a book detailing what will happen in WW2, the Cold War, and the modern day in the form of a story. Now, such a book would probably be massive, especially since he's writing the entire thing is written with beautiful prose that doesn't shirk on details. Said book becomes a huge hit and afterwards... I don't know and isn't what I'm mainly asking about here. 1. Has this idea been done before? If yes, examples please because they'll be very helpful. 2. Should I show the book to the reader? That would turn it into a frame story. I know this is a stylistic choice that is ultimately mine, but I'm asking for OPINIONS on it. Ultimately, I'll choose whether it will be worth it or not, obviously. Hope you guys can help.
