What is the idea/synopsis for your novel or screenplay?

It's a novel set in the future. Humanity have colonized several worlds and settlers are given plots of land to encourage emigration and development. The story follows one group of settlers on their journey to start a small village. They have modern technology but are also in the middle of an untamed forest hundreds of miles from anyone else. The settlers face moral dilemmas and demons from their own pasts as they try to make it. Surrounded by nature they also begin to wonder if they are truly alone. It's about the creation of identity on the frontier and the role of superstition and mythology in a modern society when part of that society is transplanted to a different setting. I may make each chapter from a different character's point of view but I haven't decided yet

Introduction

I always had an active imagination and always thought about stories but haven't done much in the way of writing recently
