Hey, i’ve been thinking of a new story for quite a while now and tried to write a first person draft, it failed horribly so now i’m resorting to third person. Except, the only problem is the introduction.
The story is set to begin with a prologue that takes place in a chaotic warzone. I’m talking elements of conventional war. (Trenches, towers, guns) crossed with sci-fi fantasy warfare (lasers, teleportation, robotics) crossed with divine forces. Then in the middle of all that chaos i introduce 4 characters, 3 of which are vital to the story.
Does anyone have any hints on how to begin writing a scene like that and introduce all the characters properly? I just want to capture the atmosphere of a warzone and get the ball rolling in terms of plot.
