Trying to Fit the Puzzle Pieces Together
I’m slowly attempting to put together a plot for this year’s Nanowrimo project. So far, it’s been difficult. I have some characters, a setting, and motivation for the characters to get moving, but they just won’t budge.
For background preparation, I made a map. There’s no up or down, north or south to it because every single city on it is the same city*. Yes, I’m fiddling around with parallel universes. Do any of the inhabitants of this city/cities know they’re traveling back and forth between parallel universes? Not really. They use the technology left behind by a more advanced civilization, but they don’t understand it. They think it’s magic.
