I’m trying a new technique with planning Fellow Tetrapod: asking myself: “what are the small, medium, and large stories of this novel?” Here are the answers:
A biologist tries to open a restaurant, get a girlfriend, and find meaning in life.
A struggling entrepreneur forms a group therapy club that turns into a dangerous gang.
A diplomatic staffer tries to make sure humanity does not screw up its chance to participate in the larger universe.
Funnily enough, these stories also turned out to be from different characters’ perspectives (protagonist, antagonist, and relationship character). That’s pretty cool. I’m gonna keep it that way.
Also, it seems as if a third of my book will be Fight Club. The other two thirds will be Zootopia and Mission London, though, so that’s okay.
