I've been working on an idea loosely inspired by the Billy Joel song, "The Downeaster "Alexa." For those who haven't heard it, here it is: The Downeaster Alexa official video
The story is set in Alaska, in the Aleutian Islands.
Actually the town our native protagonist, Alexa, lives in, is a fictionalised Unalaska/Dutch Harbor, setting of Deadliest Catch
I know that her father disappears while out on a crabbing trip, and I know that there'll be paranormal elements and she's going to try and find him. But what I don't know is what's going to happen in between. I really want to make this good and all fit together. Can anyone suggest something plausible and not too out-there? I put it aside because whatever I wrote sounded boring and I kept waiting for something to happen. If I'm bored by the current version, then its quite possible readers will be bored. I don't have any ideas beyond those points
. I'm asking this since I'm going to be getting back and revising it soon. (After I'm done with drafting and finalising CL).
