Here’s a question that I’ve had a hard time dealing with. But first, a little background.
In something I’ve been starting to put together for NaNoWriMo this year, there’s…well…these entities, I guess you could call them. They’re the main antagonists of sorts. They came into the universe the story takes place in via “gaps in the fence” between their universe and the one the story actually happens in. They’re more or less between worlds, and they can’t communicate to any of the characters or “extras”.
So that’s where the problem lies. How do you describe, or even have characters comprehend something that they can’t understand? How would I be able to have them rationalize them and their motives? Anything else I should probably think about?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
