any ideas on what to do if you have characters and settings, but no clear plot?
Divi: Write their backstories. Or summarize their backstories. Either way, you’ll find yourself beginning to create their future when you’ve delved into their past. For example, I’ve never thought about the parents of a certain character of mine except where they live and how he grew up with them, but then I realized his mother could actually play a big role in his story and be a part of the plot. Have you thought about the history of your setting as well? It should work the same way. Hope this helps, anon!
