Having just finished the first draft of my primary novel, I recently got an idea for a young adult supernatural project, however I am still brainstorming in how to make the idea more original. Having posted this on a different message board, I figured I may also get some good suggestions from this site The story surrounds a young woman who comes from a blood line of Monster Hunters, however being her parents had died (at this point I hadn't figured out how), she is raised by a strict but loving grandmother who is aware that one day her grand daughter will be sent away due to the fact that with each generation the blood within the hunter's blood is at its strongest. The young woman will be sent to a school that is a boarding school as well as a training ground for those training to be hunters of the monsters. At this school, the teenagers learn just how real these monsters are through their lessons, however the protagonists meets her two closed friends a hybrid who may have a cold personality due to her mistrust towards the hunters but is trap their and a defeated hunter with a slacker type personality. Down the road both the hybrid and the protagonist begin to question what they are becoming trained for without the answers becoming before them only to discover answers that the training school hadn't told them of there being a school and training ground specifically for monsters. I do have several ideas in where the characterizations will take certain characters, however I do realize there are many novels particularly within the genre young adults that deal with boarding schools. How can I focus on making this idea more original? Being it will be a training school I realize I need to keep the lessons towards hunting and such, but any suggestions will be helpful in figuring out where to go from here.
