I don't know if you already answered this, but do you know a good way to organize a story/book? I mean like characters, plot, problem/solutions, etc? (Sorry if this is unclear)
I don’t exactly understand what you mean by that, but I am going to give you a few links that might be useful. They are about the several ways you can use to organize your plot, introduce your characters, etc.
In order to keep track of your characters, I suggest you create little biographies or bullet point lists to which you can go back later in order to avoid inconsistencies. Answering character questionnaires can help you to understand them more and find their potential weaknesses or strengths that might be important when you’re creating plots for them!
Historian Bruce Levine explores the destruction of the old South and the reunified country that emerged from the Civil War in his new book, The Fall of the House of Dixie. He says one result of the Emancipation Proclamation was a flood of black men from the South into the Union Army:
“By the end of the Civil War, nearly 200,000 black men had served in either the Union army or the Union navy, and that alone was an enormous military assistance to the Union at a time when volunteering had fallen drastically and when there was a great deal of hostility to the draft. So these 200,000 men significantly contributed to giving the Union army the volume, the bulk, the size that they needed to cope with their Confederate opponents, and that gave the union the power, ultimately, to overwhelm the opposition.”
