Plot, Pacing, and Structure
Question of the Drama Queens???
Below is a question form the historical fiction section that related directly to this section as well
Background & Question:
I am working with a specific timeline within history but at a certain point, earth history is no longer important, toward the end if book one.
The timeline within earth history is so easy for my character to take advantage of that its just seems too easy, for both the character and the author.
Basically the circumstances regarding earth history are poorly executed by the humans of that time period,
the character I have from the same time period seemingly can do as they please and attend their own agenda.
My character has to fail meeting and overcoming challenges, and not develop into a "superhero" overnight due to the lack of performance from their historical counterparts.
How do I overcome this?

this is a good suggestion thank you, in the saga, before the main character leaves earth, I have about 30 years of critical events within that characters life, before they relocate from earth, but there are crossover years; a time where the character lives and functions on both worlds. Just a bare bones functional timeline was about 5k words, do you mean to bullet these events at the end of the book?
I am familiar with the titles above you mentioned, I will look at them again with this in mind thanks.
