i dont really have a conflict yet... or characters... jsut kinda the world >_>

i figured if i took it further it would be an action or dark action... i dont think i would like writing a drama considering i dont like watching or reading them...

i dunno i write down stuff like this all the time, i just felt like sharing to better ones with you guys

Okay, lemme throw ideas:

You just have to be unpredictable and/or unique. Find an aspect and lean hard on it.
You know, James Bond in itself has a slightly shallow approach to technicality. The appeal for it is because it advertises a lot, shows off babes, and the character's coolness is so exaggerated he actually is cool. So in your case, you could choose one aspect (Character, Technicals, Advertising (This'll be tough in writing, i admit. But you'll have art, right?) and lean on that.

Also, a good way to keep everything nice and tense, make the goodguy practically always loose, only to win in rare moments and only then with heavy losses. Make a Huuge cast of characters and start killing off even the least likely suspected, keep the reader on his toes...

remember i'm just throwing ideas so don't take it like i'm dictating the story for you ^^

Whenever I write something, I write it but I don't think about the chapters after that so when I start writing, I'm like oh **** this doesn't go well with what I wrote, and that always end up with me trying to rewrite the other parts.
Water, food, shelter are our needs but, should the internet be classified as a need?

nah not what I mean...

i mean i dont have a basis, chapters i wing but a general conflic is necessary otherwise it might end up as a journal instead of a story...

take bleach for example, it would be about ichigo n he gets his ghosty powers n stuff but theres no aizen or anything... it would be even more boring

I have problems on the conflict too, takes so long for me to think up one thats good enough for the story.

Huh? You don't like bleach?

Anyways the conflict could be a coupla things. Govt - Vs. Civilians (Somehow, some dude pays off the company to produce those devices to ensalve an entire COUNTRY! Muhuhahahaha! Or maybe enslave a president!)

Or... Uh... Well, i'll admit, your idea is pretty hard to handle. It has so many branches...

But i'm depressed now since you don't like Bleach...


@ Lirne well  sometimes the problem isn't that conflict is hard to find but your in the wrong genre (In terms of Thriller, Action e.t.c Not in terms of manga) try out different stories, and if your not sure, make short stories and work up to bigger projects.

OR, give yourself limits (500 words per chapter) and see how the words keep coming even after the limit. They're many methods.

Oh, and taking things not too seriously can help ease your mind.
