Hello all! So I'm writing a New Adult Fantasy. I'm currently in the plotting phase (I'm giving outlining a shot for the first time), and I got about halfway through before I came up with a new idea that I wanted to add. The basic story: It's futuristic America where creatures of myth are real and live among humans. My male POV character is a creature and changes my human female POV character into a creature like him. Starting in Ch. 6, they go on the run. And by the end, they're in a relationship. I have two sequences of events that I want to happen.. but I can't figure out where to place them in the story. My female POV is a creature -- but she's a special kind. They don't exactly know what she is. So one event I want to include is my characters going to another creature's house to pick his brain and figure out what my MC is. My male POV has an ex-girlfriend that he hasn't seen since they broke up. It was a strange break up, so neither of them are hostile with each other. I want to include her in their group. She would then pursue my male, even though my male is pursuing my female, thus creating all kinds of drama. My problem is I don't know which one to put first. Since I just came up with the idea today, I originally had them going to the other creature's house and finding out about my female in Ch. 10. Then going to the ex-gf's house in Ch. 12. But it doesn't really feel right to do it this way. So I thought of switching it. Have them find ex-gf in probably Ch. 9, then finding out what my female is in Ch. 11 or 12. That way, I could include some drama at the creature's house and start their love triangle early. But I worry that finding out what my female is in Ch. 12 is too late in the story. What do you think? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Y'all always give me great feedback. Thanks!!
