I guess I’m here writing this post seeking support or maybe I just need to vent my frustration. Anyway, jumping straight to the point: I came up with an idea for a book that I think is interesting and a pretty fresh idea, honestly. However, I can’t come up with an actual full on plot for my story. Basically, I have an idea, I’ve developed my main character, but where am I going with it? What’s the actual story?
Does that make sense?
It’s super frustrating because I sit down to write and my mind just reels and reels, but nothing fruitful is produced from all of the brain racking. I really want to share my specific idea with someone because I feel that conversing over my idea with a fellow writer or literature enthusiast would be super beneficial and may help me come up with plot ideas. However, I’ve been afraid to share online for fear of someone stealing my idea and in real life there is no one to really share it with either. I don’t have any other actual writer friends.
So, here I am stuck in some sort of limbo, desperately wanting to produce a good story and write my first book, but I can’t figure out the plot.
Can anyone relate? Any advice?
