NOVEL DEVELOPMENT: Creative storyteller to help with ideas and structure

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST BEFORE BIDDING! Sorry, US-based candidates only.

First, thank you for looking. This project is a bit different. I am an aspiring novelist who has been working on a project for over a year and has come to the realization that I can go no further without help.

This is NOT a writing project, though it is imperative to connect with someone who has already completed a first draft and/or has deep knowledge of novel structure and construction.

The goal is to help get my story from point A to Z. I have approximately 45k words written but all of it is not usable. I have some plot holes and sections that are not yet realized. Also, it lacks structure (3 act, hero's journey, or any other you would like to apply).

This person should be HIGHLY creative, an outside the box thinker, and have the ability to clearly articulate ideas. NOTE: I am not looking for you to write my book for me. I am HIGHLY motivated to write and complete my first draft. I am simply trying to work towards it with the help of someone with creative vision.

We can work on an hourly or milestone basis. A brief synopsis of the novel is below. Thank you.

Months after the suicide of her daughter Amy, Maggie Montgomery still cannot pick herself up from a tragedy that no one can seem to explain. Michael has left her and her friends struggle to find new ways to offer comfort. Then, unexpectedly, Maggie receives a package suggesting that there may be more to Amy’s death than she knows. Within the contents is a rental agreement and key to the house their family stayed in last summer along with a note. Determined to find closure, Maggie returns to Essex, Maine, a small seaside community where she meets Garrett, a local bookstore owner, and his daughter Haley, an autistic who serendipitously befriended Amy last summer and who might offer insight into Amy’s death. However, Maggie quickly learns that Haley possesses a language all her own and that understanding it will not only take patience and understanding but perseverance. The World I Briefly Knew is a delicate novel that not only searches for truth but also asks difficult questions about morality, intent, and the choices people ultimately make for the ones they love.
