Trying to Fit the Puzzle Pieces Together

by syaffolee

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.
