Beginnings are something which plague me, I can never find suitable point to 'start' for my story which had led to the creation of some pretty outlandish circumstances. Finding a good beginning point is always ruined when I bring up something referred to or mentioned prior to the actual story point, and it has probably gone a bit too far. I've somehow managed to wind the clock back more then three thousand years to the dawning era itself... and managed to go back even further to before the creation of the world. Then I go back even further to the 'gods' themselves... and went even further back until the 'god's individual back stories' where they all came together to begin a specific process occurred. Then, through increasing demands on character and plot points, I've managed to go back even further to display their individual lives prior to that event. I'm off the deep-end with this and the worst thing is... its relevant to the actual plot I began with. Actually, instrumental. Thankfully most of it is still in outline stage (Barring almost two thousand years of political, art and intellectual fluff, only 500 years actually matter. I began at a zero point, outlined, then fleshed out the exact details of hundreds of years in the chronology. Now everything reads like Tolkien's timelines! Where in the world do I start? The beginning of all beginnings aka 'the origin point' or the 'sealing of the great evil' the 'awakening of the great evil'. Also popping around (because it actually goes that far) is 'dawn of time' and 'before the dawn of time'. I hate flashbacks, but in doing so I've actually made a monster of a problem. Let's not get into 'length' because that's another point, but I just don't know where to cut and begin, after all its 99% worldbuilding for me.
