Interesting problem you have there Ry. Now that it's been more than two months I wonder if you have worked your way out of it. I would suggest taking all the back stories you've made and put them away. They may just complicate the process of you developing your story. Then when you have come up with a story starting from a concept I am sure you will be able to fit the back stories you have come up with. But I think it's easier in that order.

Backstory is good. Characters are better. Characters in conflict are best. That is my personal experience as far as finding the plot in the great mass of scribbled fragments I tend to generate each week.

Choose two of your characters and write a paragraph describing why they don't like to be in the same room as one another. It might suggest a unifying thread to run through the world you have already so carefully constructed.

Hello, anyone. I have a little problem. Namely, I keep creating backstory without actually makes a story. AAAAHHH!!! Any idea where I can get story idea?

My collection of erotica is out. Here's a link to the Kindle edition at Amazon.

Are we hawking researched self-published religious exposures?
See: "Shadows," about development of Wicca. That's one finished, but of course there's still "the great American novel" (in progress for almost 70 years--started when I was 10) to work on.

Currently working on s.p. about Hart Crane, the poet.

@Diana A.: I will want to read that one. During my occult period, I wrote a book and self-published it: "Liber LXIX: Sexual Magick in Theory and Practice." I recounted such things as how a particularly odious epithet for the female pudendum, "cunt," was in ancient times a sacred name for the Goddess (Cunti). I told of how the antinomian Gnostics of the early middle ages made serpents to coil about their sacrament prior to eating it, then turned off the lights and had congress with an unfamiliar partner in the darkness of the orgies. The book was the result of several years of study.

Does working on 2-3 projects at once result in never finishing any of them? Does anyone in the group write "hard and fast" at least through the first draft? What is the difference between a "novel" and a "memoir"? Is it sick to want to write stories, plays, whatever, in which the protagonist was a real person who committed suicide? (Well, the one on Virginia Woolf comes to mind; maybe I should pitch it to that guy.) Enquiring mind wants to know.
