    Hi, I'm trying to write a dystopian kind of novel. I'm currently feeling jumbled and unsure. I really like how the book is in the end but I've been struggling with writing the start, I only have a few chapters in right now and just wanted to throw it out there for anyone to read. Please give me some amazing suggestions and routes. I really am struggling with getting this in the same tone as the beginning chapters (1.2) and making it grow. Also I know my grammar is bad, just in the very beginning stages.
    Im having issues with maybe introducing characters, and also feel its to short. I have planned out the middle to end and like the direction but will keep it updated as i go.
