I’ve been planning a novella and I’ve already got a pretty good idea of who the characters are, how it’ll end and what the main events will be. I’m just wondering if I’ve made it too chaotic. I sometimes tend to go all out in an attempt to make things original, but then I end up with something crazy.
Here’s the main idea:
Thesia, the main character, gets trapped in her own dream. By trapped I mean that she’s unable to wake up and the dreams go on and on. The story is split into 4 parts, representing the four dream worlds that she goes through.
Everything that’s happening to her is based on her own wishes and fantasies. Because she’s been single for a long time and she never seems to find the right person for her, each world has a romantic interest (who turns out to be the same person at the end). The first world is full of adventure, because she lives a very boring, monotonous life. The second is a world free of sexism or gender roles. The third is a world free of homophobia because she’s pansexual. The fourth is a world free of human cruelty and selfishness.
Do you think this is too much? Should I change it?
