well the plot....there is no plot. not really. its a story about two girls growing up. i just wrote and filled in the gaps.
there is just a few major points.
the empire.
the queen.
earth.
hanna (star, princess)
Kara (star, servant)

the queen is borderline dispensible.
as for the title, i named it "Empire of Twelve:" then the rest of the title goes and changes as i move on to the next book. the plot is set more or less.

I've found the only way to develop a novel it is to write it out, and don't be afraid to throw it out (because honestly, odds are that's where your first draft is headed). In my first novel, I was 94k words deep before I got a clear indication of what I wanted to do with it and started over. Nothing is ever perfect the first time, you have to write and rewrite, and eventually you'll manage to hammer out something that you're happy with (or at least, don't want to throw out the window).

My second novel went through eight false starts (I counted, as I achieved each attempt) before I completed a draft that served as a proper base.

Second bit of advice would be to read a lot. Reading novels teaches you proper diction and story structure, and of course provides many wonderful ideas to stea- be inspired by.

I know that my current idea for a novel is largely based on personal experience and ideals. So write from the heart. I haven't started, in fact, I'm still doing character sketches, and I often forget or postpone this kind of trying work because I'm busy with literally anything else. But it is a long term goal.

Well in my case, I was just thinking of random words in my head. I was imagining what would happen if reality comes and meet up with fantasy. all I know that we have no idea if Fantasy exist here in our reality and vice versa. these people in fantasy world thinks that its their reality and that our reality is their fantasy.
How I came up with the title is beyond my understanding. Like I said, I was just thinking of words in my head until I came up with words that makes sense in this "fantasy/reality" story... which I called "Worlds Apart: The Legend"
