He got up and sat on the edge of the bedstead with his back to the window. “It’s better not to sleep at all,” he decided. There was a cold damp draught from the window, however; without getting up he drew the blanket over him and wrapped himself in it. He was not thinking of anything and did not want to think. But one image rose after another, incoherent scraps of thought without beginning or end passed through his mind. He sank into drowsiness. Perhaps the cold, or the dampness, or the dark, or the wind that howled under the window and tossed the trees roused a sort of persistent craving for the fantastic. He kept dwelling on images of flowers, he fancied a charming flower garden, a bright, warm, almost hot day, a holiday—Trinity day. A fine, sumptuous country cottage in the English taste overgrown with fragrant flowers, with flower beds going round the house; the porch, wreathed in climbers, was surrounded with beds of roses. A light, cool staircase, carpeted with rich rugs, was decorated with rare plants in china pots. He noticed particularly in the windows nosegays of tender, white, heavily fragrant narcissus bending over their bright, green, thick long stalks. He was reluctant to move away from them, but he went up the stairs and came into a large, high drawing-room and again everywhere—at the windows, the doors on to the balcony, and on the balcony itself—were flowers. The floors were strewn with freshly-cut fragrant hay, the windows were open, a fresh, cool, light air came into the room. The birds were chirruping under the window, and in the middle of the room, on a table covered with a white satin shroud, stood a coffin. The coffin was covered with white silk and edged with a thick white frill; wreaths of flowers surrounded it on all sides. Among the flowers lay a girl in a white muslin dress, with her arms crossed and pressed on her bosom, as though carved out of marble. But her loose fair hair was wet; there was a wreath of roses on her head. The stern and already rigid profile of her face looked as though chiselled of marble too, and the smile on her pale lips was full of an immense unchildish misery and sorrowful appeal. Svidrigaïlov knew that girl; there was no holy image, no burning candle beside the coffin; no sound of prayers: the girl had drowned herself. She was only fourteen, but her heart was broken. And she had destroyed herself, crushed by an insult that had appalled and amazed that childish soul, had smirched that angel purity with unmerited disgrace and torn from her a last scream of despair, unheeded and brutally disregarded, on a dark night in the cold and wet while the wind howled

Story Idea Generator

‹ Back to blog
 

Most story idea generators are awful.

They offer these mash-ups of random details that don’t make any sense, and require the writer to sift out the irrelevant details and find the connections. Or worse yet, they make you fill out some kind of form to get a nonsensical outline.

This story generator works differently.

Each prompt gives a character and a scenario, and asks a leading question that will get you started on fleshing out the storyline. It contains hundreds of story scenarios that should spur you to write.

Remember to change details as you see fit. Change the gender of the character, or the gender of the person they’re in love with, or the location, or their job. The sole goal of this story idea generator is to inspire you to write, so don’t feel like you have to stay true to the prompt.

Another distinction between this story idea generator and others: While other creative writing prompts want you to do a small exercise or to master a technique, these are designed to spur your creativity into writing a full story.

The three terms below are often used interchangeably, but there are important differences between them. I’ve organized them in order, from the least information to the most information given:

  • Creative Writing Exercise

An exercise is not designed to have you create a full story. It’s trying to teach you a specific technique that you can use in a story you’ve already written, or in a story you have yet to write. They’re the most focused of the three terms below. 

  • Creative Writing Prompt

A creative writing prompt gives you a tiny fragment that you will expand into a full-blown story. In other words, they only offer an inciting idea, and not the outline of the full story.

  • Story Generator

Story idea generators give you the most information, even more than a creative writing prompt. Not only a premise, but also how the story could develop, and the main problems of the characters.

Some people call story generator “plot generators,” because what they’re looking for is a whole set-up and climax and resolution.

I don’t call this a plot generator because it’s character based rather than plot based. I’m more interested in who characters are and how they change than in an abstract concept of a five-act structure. Also, I think writers create better stories when they start with characters than when they start with plot. Write a few stories that this story generator gives you and see if you agree.

There are three good reasons to leave a comment below:

  1. If you love a particular story idea generated above, please mention it in the comments.
  2. If you have a story published using one of the ideas above, please comment and let us know where it was published!
  3. Lastly, if you have any good story ideas, please write them below! Every writer needs good inspiration at one time or another.

    3. I have a vaguely similar problem with putting together my story, would anyone be able to help me put in into a cohesive narrative?? It’s protagonist is Nicky, a handsome, albeit naive 21 year old. He has just started his career as a hairstylist at a popular salon. He comes from a traditional Italian-Catholic family, with lots of Catholic motifs and imagery. It is strongly alluded that his father has ties if not is an active member of an organized crime syndicate. It all builds on Nicky’s “old school tough guy” roots. He moves into his own apartment in the downtown part of his rust-belt city. He even meets a girl he is interested in dating, who Also comes from a devoutly Christian, though more Southern-esque family. However, Nicky is experiencing horrific nightmares in his new apartment and they are only heightened after he meets a neighbor, Mary Grace, who although it is already obvious, later reveals she is in fact a witch. Mary Grace tells Nicky that their building has occult roots and her & her “coven” are planning to do a seance there. The psychological effect the apartment has on Nicky leads him to drink heavier & heavier. Nicky’s life eventually spins out of control due to his drinking & the hold Mary Grace seems to have on him. He eventually learns that Mary Grace’s coven is more of a cult with sinister plans…. have some more plot elements but I’m so stuck! ANY help with be appreciated !! Thank you 🙂

      1. I think Nicky should have a friend / partner who will be part of the story…When things seem to be at their worst and it seems that he is completely lost, he will discover a ” weapon ” inside the building, which will help him destroy the cult and be the hero of the day

      2. Who thinks this is a good idea a singer gets mail from a random person that says she has to kill the person she loves that she married a day ago she kills him and the person kills her she finds the person it was her love and he kills her turns out she was a zombie.

      3. That sounds like an AMAZING story totally amazing plot. I think maybe the girl that he is dating could come in and help him with his large problem with mary grace Good luck with the story it sounds amazing!

    4. The violent demon shook fear into the girl. He ridiculed her for being lonely, all she had was a pretty bird a blue jay. She thought carefully planned it out on paper and took her measurements very carefully on how she was going to defeat him. When she walk the road to him she swallowed some water and told him, “I do not fear you, I veiw like i would a change in my life.” He looked as if he wanted to eat her, look portrayed that she would be very tasty to him. I do not fear you, because unlike you I am not thirsty for another’s fear, I do not fear the weather which changes so suddenly, sunny one minute dreary and dark the next, and you, demon is just like the weather.” The demon shook violently until he was vanquished.

    5. A tasty food that was demons favorite was stealed by a violet shirt man.I was drinking water and seeing the paper of drawing of a bird in which I was seen in the man”s hand .I felt fearfull and a change in my measure of anxiety then I felt thirsty and the weather looked cloudy and chill and I shooed silently and went for a walk in road.I was lonely in the road .a girl walked in front of me .I feel chilled her face was seen like demon in first sight .I jumpscared and run away

    6. I licked a tasty demon that held extremely violent paper covered in water and then a feared bird changed into a tape measured that was thirsty and the weather shook a silent lonely girl that sat on the road and then I died. THE END

    7. As the lonely girl skipped down the isolated road, paper was flying around and small birds were picking at it hoping for a small snack to satisfy their aching tummies. Suddenly the weather began to change and the road became unbelievably silent, the birds no longer pecked and the girl no longer breathed. The whole ground shook as one by one the birds began to change and form a puddle of black water, the water rose from the ground and became thick sticky tar. This was a Demon., And not just any Demon, a thirsty demon whose violence was beyond measure and its desire to chew on this tasty little girl was even higher. The atmosphere became a heavy fog filled with fear as the Demon lunged at the girl, an ear biting scream whipping out of her…

    8. It was a silent night. The weather was calm until suddenly there was a change of the wind and the trees shook. The girl was lonely and fear crept in her heart. The road seemed endless and she was tired and thirsty. She looked around for some water. Suddenly she pictured the pie her mother had baked. It indeed was tasty. Her mother warned her to take a measure of safety and wear a coat lest she gets a cold as it was cold outside but she denied. Suddenly a paper came out of nowhere and swooped down like a bird towrds her as if her prey was there. she picked it up and it said” CLara! the demon is back and she is violent !” she gasped as she was clara.

    9. The black “Fight Like A Girl” slogan advertised on the fluorescent pink tee shirt made her stomach turn. Her brother gave it to her the night before her bilateral mastectomy surgery. The house was silent as she packed her hospital bag. She reached for the paper copy of her pathology report and stared at the final impression: DCIS with three areas of invasive cancer. Fear bubbled up into her throat.

      This shitty disease took my mother and my sister but it will not take me! She thought to herself. Her hand shook and she sat on the edge of the bed.

      “The road towards healing will not be easy,” the doctor warned her.

      “Bring. It. On.” She said to him. She was going to be a demon survivor and if that took sacrificing her anatomy, so be it!

      She jumped off the bed and made a mad dash to the toilet. Violent GI spasms overtook her body and she began to throw up the little tasty bits of dinner. The sour vomit lingered on her tongue. She immediately turned on the cold water and placed her mouth under the faucet. She wiped her chin with her sleeve and looked in the mirror. She felt lonely, and who was she kidding, she was scared. At this point, It was hard to measure how her life would change from this diagnosis. She stared into the mirror like it was an orb thirsty for the future life outcome.

      The day of her surgery, she woke at 4:00 a.m. D-day, and the fight begins. She thought to herself. The dawn chorus began with the trill of one bird heralding in the light. Hope. She thought to herself, Armed with hope, I will weather this diagnosis.

    10. I did this for fun.

    11. The creature had looked like a black blob from afar, but now that it was a few paces away, she could see that it looked more like a goblin/skeleton cross. Tall and bony, with glowing orange eyes and blackened, charred looking skin. Two horns sprouted from the crown of it’s head, stretching to the darkened sky.
      “You look tasty,” the demon said, licking his lips. “I’m going to eat you.”
      The girl stared at him, not quite realizing what it had just said. Her body shook silently, fearing for her life. Never had she seen a real life demon, like in the stories her Ma had told her all those years ago.
      “P-please don’t eat me,” the girl said, “I don’t think I would taste very good.”
      He cocked his head.
      “I already know girls like you taste good. Just like those birds called ‘chickens’,” the demon snarled, walking closer to the girl. “But I’m tired of those measly birds.”
      There were no cars on the road; no one to call for help. The girl was alone with the violent demon. With no other options, she took a piece of folder paper out of her pocket.
      “Will you take this?” she asked, “it’s money.”
      The demon stared at it silently, and then started to laugh.
      “Do I look like someone who can use money?!?” the demon exclaimed.
      The ground started to shake, and the weather changed from cloudy to storming and turbulent.
      “I… this is all I have to offer.”
      “It doesn’t measure up, so you’re out of luck.”

      “I can… be your friend.”
      “What?”
      “Your friend. You don’t have any, am I right?”
      “What do you mean?”
      “Someone to hang out with.”

      “…”

      1. Hi can some one help me with a detective and crime like a murder story please. The story should be about a detective trying to solve a murder case

    12. The weather in Alaska was always bad, especially in September. Most days, it was rainy, pouring so hard that it would have been insane to drive on a day like that. Today was no different. The trees shook unwillingly, bending so far, on either side from the violent winds, that it seemed like at any time, the trees would snap. Gaurav, a silent, auburn-haired girl sat by the window at her favorite cafe in town, tucked away in a lonely corner. This little cafe was the homey type but on days like this, there weren’t a lot of customers, which might have been why it was her favorite. Gaurav didn’t mind the weather, she appreciated the quiet.

      She had a paper and pen in hand, placed flat on the table as she scribbled away. Gaurav was an artist and more so, a perfectionist. She spent the last thirty-minutes contemplating on whether or not she should change her drawing, into something more powerful, something that made a statement, like a phoenix. A phoenix was a majestic bird with strength oozing from just its name, at least that’s what she thought.

      She had ordered a tasty donut when she arrived but now that she had eaten it all, she began to get thirsty since it had been so sweet. She went through her bag and pulled out a bottle of water. She got thirsty all the time and sometimes she wasn’t in a position where she could go buy herself one so she carried a bottle with her at all times. She chugged away on her water, relishing the fresh liquid that she consumed.

      While she did, the doorbell chimed. A tall ravishing figure walked in, broad shoulders, dark coat, dark hair, and slight stubble on his face. His footsteps could be heard as she averted her eyes from the stranger. The anxiety and fear started to build in the pit of her stomach. She didn’t like being approached by people she did not so she always went the extra mile to stay out of the way. He stopped at her table and took a seat, not once asking whether he could sit or not or greet her. His aura was dark and Gaurav felt uneasy. There were plenty of empty tables in the cafe but this man had chosen to sit at her table.

      She thought about getting up and moving to another table but then she decided against it, telling herself that she had been here first. She shoved her glasses up onto her nose bridge, it was something she often did when she was nervous as she stared down at her drawing, unsure on how to finish it since her space was invaded.

      “You forgot an eye.” His voice was rough and coarse yet thick and sweet. His voice was dangerous and struck fear into Gaurva’s heart, as it almost escaped her chest. She dared not to look at him.

      “Oh, yeah thanks,” She breathed out timidly when she had spotted her error, so much for being a perfectionist. Truth be told, she was nervous just by the measure of a mere glance from him.

      “May I borrow your cell-phone?” He asked, peering over at her, his arms braced against the table. She looked at him unsure what to say or do. He was a man that she just met for all she knew he could a creepy stalker or pedophile. He was about twenty-six years not much older than she was. He sensed her hesitation and doubt by only the moments that passed since he asked.

      “My car broke down on road on my way into town and my phone’s dead. I just need to make a quick phone call so my sister can come and pick me up.” He explained his predicament as he looked at her straight in the face. His sharp jawline and his almond eyes seemed honest. Gaurav nodded agreeing to help him this once. His vulnerability and the fact that he needed her help had aided in her fear vanishing, he no longer embodied the threatening guy she thought he was. She handed him the phone, “Here.”

      He took it, dialed the number and rested the phone at his ear, turning away from her slightly as he listened to the phone ring. He had her full attention now. She was still a little scared that he’d run away with her phone so she watched him closely.

      “Hey, it’s Raphael. I’m borrowing someone’s phone so I can’t talk long. What do you mean you don’t know any Raphael? It’s me, your brother!” He raised his voice getting frustrated with the person on the other end of the call. “My car broke down and my phone died. I don’t think I’m gonna make it to the reunion anyway. I’m at Homey’s Cafe; could you come and get me?”

      “What do you mean you can’t make it?” He questioned the other person. “No, don’t ask him. I’ll find my way there then. Never mind, forget it.”

      “I’m not being childish or stubborn; he got me suspended for something I didn’t do.” He paused for a bit, listening to what whosoever he was talking to had to say. “You try being friends with a guy that dated the girl you liked. I don’t care if he’s my brother. Do not call him.” He warned.

      It was a while before he said anything again until she heard him say, “Fine, call him. I don’t have a choice anyway. Yeah, later, see you then.” Then he hung up and turned to Gaurav, handing her her phone. “Thanks.” He said.

      Gaurav was trying her best not to burst out in laughter; unfortunately, little giggles had escaped her lips. She took her phone and glimpsed the stranger in front of her, the tips of his ears were red, he was mortified. That made it even funnier.

      “So a reunion, eh?” She asked, finding some sort of courage to make conversation, while she drew.

      He nodded, “Yes, it’s tomorrow.”

      “Cool,” she replied smiling a bit to herself at his over-the-phone-conversation for a minute she thought his bickering was… cute.

      “So you’re an artist?”

      “Yeah, I’m trying to ‘hone’ my craft.” A smiled formed on her lips as she said this as she thought back to the reason she got into art.

      “Well, I am too.” She told her. As she examined him, she noticed his brown eyes had flecks of green and she realized he had an ear piercing too. Immediately, she had him pegged as the bad boy type, not an artist at all. This piqued her interest. She would have never guessed. She looked at him quizzically and he recognized this as a look of incredulity.

      “My bad, I’m Raphael-

      Before he could finish his statement, another man walked in and a gust of wind had made her chilly. She hugged her sweater around her. He was wearing a brown lumberjack jacket and his dirty blonde hair was wet with drops of water. He walked over to her table and she frowned at the man that stood at five ft. ten inches. He was her high school ex-boyfriend.

      “Michael, what are you doing here? I already gave you my answer, it’s not happening.” It was like a mechanism, it came out with her not having to think about it. He had asked her multiple times to take him back, she just assumed today was like all those other days.

      He scoffed, “Not everything is about you. I’m here for him.”

      Suddenly, everything made sense, Raphael asked, not realizing that the atmosphere had shifted ever since Michael had walked in. “Do you guys know each other?”

      “NO!” I blurted.

      “YES!” Michael blurted the opposite.

      “Okay…” He held his hand out for a handshake, “Like I was saying earlier, I’m Raphael-

      I cut him off, I already knew who he was. He was Michael’s brother, “Demon. You’re Raphael Demon and Michael is your brother…”

      So this is what I would have written with all those words.

    13. can someone help me come up with an interesting plot for my fanfic? So basically

      There’s a guy named J who just became a police officer, but then he meets a seductive criminal who he starts lusting after but he’s taken already by his Sugar Daddy who is very possessive over him (he’s a underground drug lord). There’s also this other guy who is lusting after the seductive criminal, he was in the same Orphanage as him when he was a kid. He’s obsessed with him and wants him too, so he hates J because he knows that the seductive criminal has taken a liking to the Police Officer.

      I’d very much appreciate it if someone could help me with this

    14. I need help writing a story on:
      Useless…
      Ever felt so useless to the point where you don’t understand the point to your existence? Well I’m probably the most useless human being around! I come from a middle class family, I have a nice home, great education, and I guess some love. I have these amazing friends and compared to them I’m nothing! They can draw, edit, sing, write, dance! They ask have a talent! I have a twin sis who is an extraordinary artist and violinist! She is great at science, and pretty much has her whole life planned in front of her! Let’s keep all this to the side and more about me I can’t do anything (not because I’m disabled) I took many classes on different things but I can’t even develop one talent! I’m stuck in a mess about a guy I’m trying to forget for the post 2 years nothing happened between us (we didn’t even date) but he loved me! And to me someone caring about me is pretty hard to find, I mean I know my parents love me but we weren’t the best family! My parent’s pretty much fought every other week…ahh so am I kidding, almost every day! At first I was very scared of everything kept everything bottled up but like every coke bottle that explodes because of the mentos, I had mine, it was about a year ago when I bursted! Did it do anything? No, I had to face my consequences and got yelled at!

    15. Once upon there was a boy that was eating a tasty cake, but a violent demon came and splashed water to his paper bird origami. When the boy saw the water he felt fear and anger. He measured how tall the demon was and changed the music in the radio. He was thirsty, so he went inside the house to get a drink of water, and saw that the weather outside was cloudy. He shooked silently, and lonely in his room because the weather outside was cloudy. The demon then crossed the road to leave, but then saw the boy sad and made his way up to the boy’s room to console him. The demon turned into a girl and became best friends with the boy. The boy never knew the girl was a demon. They lived happily together as best friends. THE END!!!

      BTW, I am the famous singer Ariana Grande. Hope you like this story, and if you don’t like well it is okay.

    16. I need help in writing a story about a kid who encountered a monster, but the story can not have any violence. Also, the monster ca not harm or maim the kid because those are my teachers rules for the story, and it has to be at least 5 paragraphs long. In addition, the story has to include all of the plots elements: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Please this is urgent and it is due today.

    17. Hiii I really want to write a story so can anyone help me please and I really want it to be like about goddesses or just any random plots that you guys haveeee please help me I really need it!

      Thank youuu!

  2. This is great, I love the way it’s both random and not random. The ideas make sense but it’s also something I couldn’t have thought of myself. Really glad this exists.

    1. Over a thousand years ago, trees were planted in Calke Abbey, these trees hold a secret, they are a gateway to a secret world, hidden away from the world we know.

  3. I’m writing a novel regarding a wife and mother that has never told her husband or daughter, friends etc.. about her dark past. She was involved with someone that turned violent and went to prison for murder. I will be introducing 3-4 characters or possible suspects that could be stalking her. Any advice/ideas of specific ways someone could stalk and cause her harm? I’m researching stalking and kidnapping. I want to scare and shock the reader, for this is why I enjoy reading this type of book. Thank you.

    1. I think any form of stalking is harmful. Opening bathroom windows, breaking the blinds at eye level so he can see inside, sneaking inside while she sleeps, etc, is all creepy without getting actual physical harm. Of course, then you could progress to drugging her food to start the kidnapping, or carving words into her skin while she’s unconscious.

      And when you’re finished, please consider Bookfox for your editing needs!

      1. Personally, I think that the most terrifying ways to stalk someone are these three things:

        Firstly, going after someone but not having them no you exist, but rather feel it. Imagine the idea of feeling that you are always being watched, knowing that someone is following you home everyday, but not being able to tell someone because without evidence it just makes you look insane.

        Secondly, online stalking. We’re talking hackers, stalkers, people who get accessed via their digital footprint. You should look up these great social experiments were people learn about someone based off their facebook page, go to where they are likely to be, and then creep them out by telling them all this information about themselves that this total stranger shouldn’t know, right?

        Thirdly, the idea of someone else you know being stalked. You said she has a husband, imagine him describing to her what appears to be someone stalking him, and her slowly realising that the stalker seems dangerously similar to her old ex… That would give me chills.

        Anyway, just a couple of suggestions, and thanks for raising the interesting idea. Toodles!

  4. I read the story generator’s default story when I looked: the premise of the three brothers, two of whom decide to pay a visit to the third whom they haven’t seen in many years. Here’s what I came up with immediately. Orville and Wilbur Wright decide to visit their brother Ezekiel who has decided to withdraw from society. He lives on a small island off the Outer Banks, eschewing civilization and the advance of technology. The brothers arrive and during a conversation, realize that Ezekiel is crazy. He threatens to return to the mainland and destroy all their plans and their functioning airplanes. He chases them with a rake. They manage to get into their airplane, a technological advance over their initial 1903 model, and just manage to take off with Ezekiel chasing them. Back on the mainland they discuss what to do with their crazy brother. They hire a doctor and several attendants to get Ezekiel and put him in a home for the unstable. However, the team finds the island abandoned. About six months later, Wilbur dies shortly after eating a meal (in reality, Wilbur died a day after consuming shelfish in 1912. OK. Who wants to buy the rights to the movie?

  5. I’m trying to come up with a good plotline for a roleplay with friends. I love supernatural stuff and I have this idea of each character being haunted by their own personal ghost. Not necessarily in a bad way, as some may be past loved ones or something. I’m not sure how to make a story line out of this. I love the concept, but what’s the goal? And who is the antagonist?

  6. You should do a 17 year old girl who kills her best friend because she wanted a boy and the the friend haunts her and it leads to series of events with police, people online saying she is crazy, family not trusting her, the girl keeps getting visits from the ghost friend, and and then finds a way to bring her back to life

    1. Do you think I could use that idea for my next book? With a few details changed, of course, but it’s really a good idea.

    1. I wouldnt advise on doing that as a Childcare worker I believe there are many more topics you could write about. Like hide and seek throwing a catching balls whats the time Mr wolf drawing painting crawling walking singing anything but diahrreah. Or maybe you could do it if you really wish too and a child has a bad case of it and then the diaoreah spreads throughout the service. And through out the town and then a special elite team have to come and eradicate the plague. Haha.

  7. I am currently planning a novel and would like to get some feedback on the plot I have at present, to see how I could develop it further. While living with his parents, Kaiden never believed that he could truly be himself. Now he is going to university, he knows he can finally be himself without worrying about being struck by the opinions of his family, and his homophobic brother. As a boy who has struggled with depression, anxiety, and struggling through a phase of insomnia he finds that being at university is improving his mental state. Until he realises that he has the ability to see, absorb and manipulate the emotions of the people around him (Empathy). As he gets used to living a completely independent life and develops his Empathy power, he discovers that he is being followed. Little to his knowledge that there is an entire agency dedicated to the monitorization of people with abilities. As he begins to delve deep into the agents who are following him, he discovers the true size of the agency. He is then greeted by the lady running the agency, who goes only by “Mother”. She offers him a chance to join the agency, and they will help him control his powers and unlock a new stage he could never hope to unlock without him. Theron is hesitant and tells her that he will not leave university but he will consider it once he finishes university. Within the agency the there are a select few who want to leave the agency but instead decide to take it over. They form a group, and derive a plan of getting Theron to use his Empathic powers to take out “Mother”, so they could take over without anyone within the agency questioning her replacement. So they capture Theron’s parents, his brother and sister-in-law as well as his 11-month-old niece, housemates and his boyfriend. When “Mother” discovered their plans, she invited Theron to the agency in order to get him on her side instead of theirs. Instead, he decides to side with neither and he uses his powers to destroy the agencies defences and rescues everyone he loves. In the attempt to escape, his boyfriend and niece are killed in front of him. It puts Theron in an uncontrollable rage, and he uses his powers to destroy the building and everyone instead. A Month later, Theron attends his nieces funeral. As he takes a moment outside the church, a man approaches him saying that he has the power to take him back in time to save his niece, but as long as he also saves someone for him. Theron agrees and he is taken to the past, where he saves not only his niece but his boyfriend and the little girl as agreed. Little does he know that by doing his he steps on more butterflies than he was meant to, and that now in the new future “Mother” survived and rebuilt the agency this time in greater secrecy.

    1. This sounds like a good premise, but as an editor I usually work with finished manuscripts, not just outlines. Please feel free to contact me when you’re done, though!

    2. It sounds like a really great idea for a novel, however, I’m a bit confused about who Kaiden is. You started your story out with this “Kaiden” sounding like the main character but then it seems to switch to a different character by the name of Theron. Just a bit confusing 🙂 No worries though, it sounds like a great book.

    1. I’ve thought of a few ideas- hope I’m not too late!
      1. The race to the top of the social pyramid/ the race for power
      2. An actual race
      3. A struggling student who has to race to become the best in their class in order to achieve their dream.

  8. Love your site! The prompts are so diffrent and refreshing , I really like the added religious aspects in some of them as it adds a lot more to the chracter.

  9. Im looking for a thriller story to write. It would just be a 2-3 pages and I really enjoy the big hit of excitement at the end of stories. The gasp of unexpectance is the best part for me. Im looking for any plot that includes the unliving, crime, governmental secrets, and an ending that isn’t too happy or sad.

  10. Okay, so i’m trying to make something like this, but I need extra add-ons to this. Basically all I have (it’s bad, someone help me please) is the leader of a country has died, and you now are in Anarchy. Your neighbors think you did some very very evil things to them, but really you didn’t and someone else did. Now they want to kill you, since it’s anarchy. (this is for a game) The two things you have to do now is a. Stop your neighbors from killing you. b. Find out who’s behind framing you for the evil things & kill him so you don’t have the trouble anymore. Ideas on fixing, or is it already good?

  11. Hey I need urgent help on a short story with the them of loneliness or change, nothing supernatural please. I would like it something that the reader will never forget, thought-provoking and a bit creepy. I don’t want a happy ending I want it be realistic. I will accept any ideas please help xxxx

    1. Maybe it could be about a girl who’s brother and dad die in a car crash. The girl is 14. The mom wants a fresh start, so she and the daughter pack up and move to a town where the girl learns that change is everywhere and she needs to accept that. Meets a boy, blah blah, you get the point.

  12. Hello. A very good website – love it(!) – and have been given many great ideas from it. When I finish my novel/novella is there anyone who would be happy to critic/check/edit, basically just read it? Do you do that BOOKFOX?

  13. I’m in middle school and going to a writing camp over vacation. I need a twenty page illustrated story by tomorrow and I know I cant get it done. I feel super pressured and can’t figure out a good story plot! I feel like I’m freaking out a little bit and I need some help, and the teacher doesn’t really understand that I just can’t figure out something to write. I’m generally a really good author but I’ve had brain freeze during camp for the past few days. Any tips?

  14. Hi!
    Can anyone help me? I can’t make the short plot.
    This story involves a successful business woman, a businessman (her rival), a huge mistake, a revenge, a romance, a missing person, and an attempted murder.

  15. The plots are fantastic i must say, of all story or plot generator this is the best one, Im new to writing story and i need some help ^-^; If you have an idea on what do i do first as a newriter please comment ^-^ thank you very much

    1. Devote yourself to a single prompt and just write as long as you can on it. Nothing special. Just focus and really flesh out that single idea. Get a rough first draft and then you can edit it later.

  16. I’m sorry but how do you use this generator? Maybe I’m just dumb or something but I don’t get it.
    Does anybody mind explaining, please?

      1. Most people see a “New Story Idea” on the left just below the generator. It works for me.

        Can I ask what browser you’re using? Maybe change the browser and see if it works?

  17. Hello,
    I have opened this page in Microsoft Edge and Firefox and there is no New Story Idea button showing in either browser. There is a picture of Mammoth List of Creative Writing Prompts and a Best Story Generator of All Time, but where is the generator and the button?

    1. Hi,

      I’ve tried it in Safari, Firefox and Chrome and can see the Story Generator in all 3 browsers. Not quite sure why people are having this problem.

  18. Hello again,

    I checked back here to see if you had responded and this time instead of two black lines which I had assumed were spacing for the page, between the two lines was a short story idea and below that, a New Story Idea clickable text.

    Thank you for fixing/updating the page. May I suggest that you add a color highlight to the New Story Idea text to make it look more like a button?

    Thanks, again!

  19. Man I still can’t see anything, which is weird since I got it to work before. Using Chrome btw, but my version of chrome has always been a little weird so it may just be me.

  20. Hello.
    Can anyone help me with a one location 3-5 characters faith based movie. I will be more than happy to give you the credit.
    Thanks

    1. It could be about a young man in college who has the perfect life. He has amazing friends, a wonderful family, and an incredible girlfriend. Suddenly one day he gets a letter saying that he has a son (5 or 6 years old) whose mother (one of his ex-girlfriends) has just died and he was the boy’s only living relative. So he takes the boy in. The boy has very traumatic things in his past that (they don’t know yet) his father can relate to a lot. As they spend more and more time together, the boy starts to open up to his father sharing the things of his past and telling him how his faith in God has helped him through all of it. Eventually his father opens up to the boy and in the end his son leads him to Christ.

      I hope this helps 🙂

  21. Hi,
    Can any one help me with a very short story with the following words.
    pyromaniac, all-night diner, bowling pin, polyester, skycap, tuna fish, gardenia, infinity

    Needs to include two characters, a place, two objects, an adjective and all the words stated above.

    1. A young girl was born with no arms or legs; she was just a torso with a head. When she is eight, she realizes she has the ability of a magnet; she can pull anything to her, giving her a bulky, Hulk-like form. She notices most police aren’t doing they’re job of defeating the bad guys, so she decides to fight them herself.

    1. It could be about a couple who want kids, but can’t have any. So they decide to adopt. They travel to Africa (or somewhere else) to meet the boy/girl they are going to adopt. They spend a lot of time with them and get attached to the child. While they are, they learn that the boy/girl has had a very traumatic past and when they go to meet him/her, they discover thathe/she is missing. The couple goes looking for the child and eventually find them. They adopt him/her and go home.

  22. Can anyone help with a storyline based on the life of the homeless? I’m thinking a woman who is homeless (in Melbourne CBD) sees and hears the same people walking past each day and slowly pieces together bits of their lives, relationships, work via hearing phone calls and gathering dropped pieces of paper etc. Somehow the women meets a businessman (who is one of the people walking past her) and he helps her out of homelessness/possibly fall in love? Needs to mainly focus on homelessness though. Any suggestions or ideas to change or add would be so so greatly appreciated! Thankyou 🙂

  23. I have a story idea if anyone wants to use it. Here it is: There’s a lady YouTuber who is famous and she marries a secret agent who claims he works at an office. She got raped at 16 and has a baby boy. A man comes in the house looking for the secret agent. He finds the YouTuber and kidnaps her. The secret agent and his partner try and find the lady. They find her strapped into a chair with duct tape covering her mouth. They get her out of there. Later, they have twin baby girls together.
    I hope you like it! I didn’t put too much detail into it. I left that up to you! Check out my YouTube channel HorseGirl Roblox soon to be HorseGirl Gaming + More.

  24. Some great ideas! i’m just getting back into writing now (in my 30s) used to write regularly in my teens and twenties. tI’m trying to recharge the imagination 🙂

  25. A girlfriend and boyfriend watch a full solar eclipse together. Right at the climax, what does the girlfriend tell her boyfriend that shocks him? Can anybody help with story ideas

    1. She could tell him that:
      – she’s moving away
      – she found out she has cancer
      – she has a really bad heart condition and only has one month to live

  26. Someone said to leave a comment so the generator pops up *testing* Also, can anyone help me with some good romance plots? I plan on creating them with a ship in mind

    1. It could be about this girl (let’s just say her name is Lily) who has had a rough past and her dad just died. So she and her mom are moving to have a fresh start. She is the new kid at her school and she meets a boy (Andrew) and it is hate at first sight for the two of them. But as they get to know each other, they start to fall in love. But what happens when Andrew finds out that he has cancer (or something) and only has a few months left to live? Will he tell her how he really feels or will he leave her forever and both of them will be wondering what could have been?

  27. I modified one a bit: A boy and girl hiking off trails in an undiscovered mountain stumble across three shiny spherical objects the size of small cars. What happens when an old man who claims to be the “guardian” of these objects shows up and leaves the children wondering what the object is?

  28. Someone feel free to use this one:

    Constance and Roman are living in a snowglobe, discovered by a young gothic teen. She’s living alone and no one knows her parents died when they left for Paris months earlier…except Sebastian Crete.
    She had received the empty snow globe (with a castle inside) at a gift shop she worked at one day and the shopkeeper ‘insisted’ that she take it, as he found it unsellable.
    She is shocked to learn there are two people living in her snow globe, a couple who claim they were trapped there by a cruel witch centuries before. They make a deal with her. Track down the witch’s grave and get back the emerald ring which will release them.
    Sebastian Crete arrives and she confesses what is going on. He doesn’t believe her at first until she shows him, and he is awed.
    Nonetheless, he agrees to dig her up, as he is a rebel and also hopes to get any other jewelry she may have on her.
    They spend all night digging at the lonesome grave atop the hill. When they crack it open, they find the emerald ring and take it.
    The moment they touch the ring, they find themselves transported into the snow globe. When they look on the outside, they see Constance and Roman, bearing a wicked smile.
    They stuff the snowglobe in her brown satchel and leave the house. For this time they can only hear what’s going on the outside.
    They arrive at her store, inquiring to the shopkeeper how to get back to their own time. Missy is shocked to learn that he is able to help them. They plan to go back and destroy the witch before a time she was set to punish them.
    She gets them instead and claims the globe.
    Sebastian uses the ring to scrape at the glass, weakening it as time goes on. Finally, he kicks it, cracks it, and falls out. But leaves Missy behind inside. The witch claims the ring from him, which with the promise not to hurt Missy or him, he willingly gives to her.
    After Sebastian cracks the snow globe and sets her free, she does not return to her full size without the ring. They are stuck in a time they are unfamiliar with.

  29. pleas write a story on the following outline:
    hens and small animals start disappearing form a farm- no one knows how- farmers very upset- 3 boys and girls form a gang of detective- call themselves rustic spys- keep a vighul on farm at night- shocked to find

    1. it could be about a Ouija board and a group of detectives pushed to their limits and science and the paranormal meet each other

  30. A 18-year-old woman who has grown up in a polygamous Mormon community just outside St. George, Utah, decides she wants to leave just before she’s betrothed to a much older man with three wives. How does she escape, and how do they attempt to track her down?
    Mormons are not polygamous it was just during the time that they were forced to go Utah while woman couldn’t own land and we do not track down people who choose to leave our religion.

  31. is there anyone who could think of a short story about a stolen identity witch leads to a kidnap and a suicide.?

  32. Greetings to all and thank you Bookfox for this amazing website. I stumbled upon it accidentally via google searching and I have spent the past three hours here. From the information and generator to all the visitor comments and help I found such amazing ideas, insights, and a new place to come back to. So thankful to have found this website and I will be sure to share it with friends!! Happy writing everyone!!

  33. Liberty butterscotch was thinking about Alec Dickson again. Alec Dickson was a cute smart guy with muscly body. Liberty walked over to the window and reflected on her beautiful surroundings. She had always love the magic of New York with its creepy crooked cliff it was a place that encouraged her tendency to feel happy.
    Then she saw something in the distance or rather someone it was figure of Alec Dickson. Liberty gulped she glanced at her own reflection. He was handsome stood there with skinny glasses of red wine but a lot of people thought of him as impure but I could see that angelic touch. He rescued a baby from burning building
    The rain hammered like galloping horse making liberty mad. She grab a gun that had been stored new by she massaged with her fingers finding her way to the trigger liberty then step outside alec came closer she could she the worried guilt in the dark eyes alec gazed with the affection of 9658 dogs he said in a hushed tone. “I love you and I want affection “the rain fell around them alec moved his way in to the house. Liberty still holding the gun. “Alec get out of my house “she replied her voiced cracked as tears filed her eyes.
    They look at each other with scared feeling. Alec study liberty eyes she was scared liberty then took deep breath and said “I’m sorry “began liberty in an apologetic tones “but I don’t feel the same way and I never will I just don’t love you alec”
    Alec looked lost in his emotion. Liberty could hear his heart shatter in to 1000 paces she knew this is what she had to do to protect him. Alec left but before he left he lowed liberty gun so it was pointing to the floor and kissed her forehead before leaving the house.
    Liberty berthing became heavier she was broken she had to do if alec was going to be safe it what had to be she thought. He name liberty mean to be free but she didn’t feel free she was trapped by his word his voice in her head alec was gone

    this is my short story am not so sure pls tell me what you think bear in mind am 10

  34. I am currently working on a novel within my free time. It involves a partly apocalyptic future torn apart by man made diseases.
    The chapters fluctuate between the viewpoint of four different characters who fit completely different roles within the story.
    The characters so far have names and their difference.
    Each difference is a disease or gentic mutation.

    Ritta Ridger-Rash.

    Mr Ridger-Mutant.

    Speciemen Four-Lizard Fever/Saurian/Scaily.

    Jerimiah Krause-Fireye.

    What are your thoughts, or do i need i randomly say more info.

      1. Great, I guess we’ll see.

        My main problem is the slowness this is working at, it is normal to write a chapter, change everything, start again, change some more. My first chapter still isn’t finished and i’ve been working on it for half a year, is that normal, or am i just experiencing a normal writers challenge like everyone else.

        BTW, your posts and little articles really helped me so far, alot of the changes came after seeing that i messed up after reading your advice for fictional writters.

      2. Yep, the slowness is normal. The challenges are normal.

        And so glad to hear that my posts have been helpful. I’d love to hear which ones were your favorite.

      3. Ok great.
        The guides on making good characters really helped, it made me look back and realize, “No one cares about my characters” so i redid them to make them more suitable to reality, the character quiz thing was good, i didn’t know i knew so little about my own characters.

        I’ve been writting a second story, and posting chapters online, it now has a small fanbase, but as i look back at this story, i found myself hating it, i no longer find joy in writting it, i want to quit and start over with my renewed writting skills, but i don’t want to disapoint my fans.

        My question is this, if i hate my own story, do i try starting over anyway, or improve it, even if i find no joy in it?

      4. If you hate your own story, it’s a good sign that something isn’t working. Either you find a way to change the story so you start liking it, or you try to write another story that you’re excited to write.

        If you’re bored, the reader will always be bored.

      5. I’ve revised my online story, and so far, the readers are taking really well. I deleted all the previous chapters and started new ones. I’m trying to really go for the scared character who forgets his most his past, I’m trying to get the feeling of confusion and mystery.
        I’ve kept a few important details from the old story and some of my readers imeadiatly made the connection, which pleases me. I would like to thank you for your help, it’s really brought the joy back into writing. If you wish to read it, I’ll give ya the details.

  35. I have this one idea for a story, but I’m not sure whether it’s worth of writing. It’s about this one guy who helps people to get off the streets and people with depression/anxiety etc. He’s not the protagonist, but more of a “tool” to the main character to get over his angst and to try live a good life, with his new found best friend/love interest (I don’t know if I’ll actually write anything between them). So the helper guy commits suicide, and his friends don’t know if he was killed by his boss (he’s kinda part of a criminal mob), or if he killed himself, even though to everyone it’s pretty obvious that he killed himself, they just don’t want to admit that to themselves. So the group of friends start to “investigate” into the reasons for a) his boss killing him, b) him killing himself.
    As the investigation goes further, the group loses people one by one, the first one just leaving angrily, not wanting to think about their friends death, the second one killing themselves since they were the helper guy’s best friend for year and they know that the helper guy killed himself, and it pains them so much. The third one kills themselves too, since they were kind of a “foster child” of the helper guy and his best friend. The three of them lived together and the foster child person just feels like they have nothing out there anymore. It’s kind of like that each one in that group had their mental problems, and the helper guy’s death shakes that and messes with their heads. They’re almost everyone depressed, the first leaving person having severe problems with aggression and anger management, the helper guy’s best friend being ex-alcoholic and the third(“the foster child”) having bad trauma of being abandoned. The main character is suffering from borderline personality disorder and his best friend from depression.
    So after the majority of the friend group dies/leaves, the main character and his best friend drop the investigation since they realise how the helper guy died and what happened after that, and they promise each other to help each other out and try to keep on living well, because that’s what the helper guy probably wanted.

    The problem with this idea is that.. I fear that the plot is not “plot” enough, and it’s a bit too slice of life and depressing for a book (but then again, I like those kind of books myself so I like to write them too). I don’t know, maybe I should add something to this to make it have more spine for the story.

    1. It’s tough to tell without you writing it. But I would encourage you to write it, because the process of writing is going to give you more ideas and the idea will be shaped by the act of writing it. Some things you can only figure out through the process of writing.

      Clearly this is an idea that you’ve thought about for some time, so go for it.

  36. Hey y’all! i am trying the November Novel (50000 word book in the month of november) and i need a book plot. I want some romance, mystery, sacrifice, and i want it in the mid-eval times. The main characters is a 17 year old girl named Lillian-Grace Heath, but she goes by Lilly-Grey. Please help with the plot!

  37. Hi! I am kind of looking for ideas to write a script for a play. My theme is “Corruption In The Medical Sector”. The only requirement I want is that the ending and the story should have kind of a moral cause the play has to be enacted by students. Please help!

  38. I was just wondering if someone could help me finish a short story that I have been working on. I keep writing it, making it longer and longer, but I can’t put it to an end. (When will it end?!)
    Title: Finding Camelot
    Characters: Descendant of Arthur- Alix, Descendant of Merlin- Claire, Descendant of Lancelot- Seth
    (I have one other character that comes in, but I think that I want to have it end just before meeting him. He is supposed to be a descendant of Percival. Yes, I was trying to go with characters that are common in the Arthurian legend.)
    Setting: The time period is around four to five generations after Arthur. The main character, Alix, is the daughter of a servant to the current king of that time. Alix and Claire go to Caerleon, which is where they find Camelot, as in the title.
    Plot: Alix is visited by Claire and her father who asked her to join them to Caerleon, she accepts only because it is Claire that is going. When the three arrive they have vivid dreams of Merlin and Arthur, or rather, themselves. Alix is visited yet again by Merlin in the inn that they decided to stay at. Merlin leads her to the Round Table, little do they know that Claire has followed them. The door to the Table is sealed tight, only the descendant of Arthur is able to open it. It isn’t only Claire and Alix that have had these dreams of their ancestors, but Seth of Lancelot descent has as well. He makes his way to Caerleon and introduces himself to Alix who then knights him. There is a budding relationship between Alix and Seth.

    If there is anything that is missing or any holes that you think I need to fill, then please tell me and I will clarify anything.

      1. I’ve had a similar problem, but it happens with the name generator instead of this one.

        Instead of the actual generator, its a blank full of code.

  39. “A child unjustly accuses her father of m*lesting her. After she is taken away by Child Protective Services, she admits it was a lie, and she is placed back in the home. How does the relationship between her and the father change?”

    holy shit this should never have been an option for this generator to produce – this is an actively harmful idea, and as a survivor of csa, not a topic that should be casually thrown in here??

  40. I want to write something that fits the title ‘Snowstorm’ and has a nice blend of fantasy, humor and romance.

  41. I need something of a plot that links a hacker working for the cia and is on a tight leash and a ceo that goes against the law secretly

  42. This website needs to clear things up. It has some serious misconceptions. One of the prompts states:
    “A 18-year-old woman who has grown up in a polygamous Mormon community just outside St. George, Utah, decides she wants to leave just before she’s betrothed to a much older man with three wives. How does she escape, and how do they attempt to track her down?”
    I can’t say this in a better way: MORMONS ARE NOT POLYGAMOUS. THEY JUST AREN’T. In fact, its against their standards to practice polygamie. Also, if you know anything about mormons, they wouldn’t track a girl down just to marry her. Mormons have very strict standards and believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and doing good to all men and women. If websites like this continue to drop lies about religions, cultures, or races, problems arise. This website needs to fix its prompts.

  43. I’m writing about a girl with an invisible mark that she doesn’t even know about, A school, A Forebidden Room, other marked ones, and special abilities.
    Can anybody help me, I need to actually begin my story, so far I only have the idea for it, and some of the characters.

    1. What are you missing so far? We could give you ideas, but I think I would need a little bit more information about what your looking for.

    1. Wow! I actually sort of did this one! What if you make your main charater a demon, who doesnt want to be bad? Then she tries to convince her school, Demoni High, that they dont have to be bad. Or evil, just loving.

  44. I need help with my story idea. Any ideas for a story with the words cat girl, adventure, romance, finding the past, and with a setting of the mid evil era. Any ideas?

    1. What about, a cat that gets transformed into a girl. She beomes a cat girl. Then she goes on an adventure with the girls best friends so she can get her cat bod back. While on the adventure, she meets a boy that totally falls for her. While still on the andventure, she goes back and discovers the girls past. That makes her want to fix it. And to top it all of, for half of the book, they were in the mid evil era.

  45. hey guys?
    i need to write a short story about DNA at crime scene. I have few ideas but they don’t make “DNA” the spotlight. can you please help me.

  46. I need help. I am writing a novel and I need help. In this story, I want it to be sad but happy parts are included. a general area that I would like for it has is something that has to do with a teenage girl dealing with depression. the twist is I don’t want it like regular depression stories. can someone help me?

  47. I can see you have some really good and challenging writing prompts here. Some could easily lead to a novella, like the one about the widowed father trying to win his teenage girls’ affection.

  48. Just a little tip from a first-time visitor to your site; one of your writing prompts references a transgender man as a protagonist, but repeatedly refers to the character as ‘her’. If you intend to write about transgender people, encourage others to write about transgender people, or edit stories about transgender people, I suggest that you correct this. I hope that this feedback will be taken in the constructive spirit which it is given.

  49. hey im trying to write a short story about a girl who got bullied and then commited suicide can you please hekp me asap x

  50. The prompt you have that reads, “A female pianist who has recently transitioned into a man keeps getting phone calls from a blocked number, asking her to play the piano at their funeral. What person in her past is behind the calls, how do they know they will die soon, and why does this person want her to play?”
    should probably be altered, if it is a pianist who has recently transitioned to a man, then the pronouns should be “he” not “she” as this is misgendering a male character.

  51. I have a premise about a girl who discovers she’s a Cambion- half human, half incubus/succubus- after being rescued from a bloodthirsty demon by a Wiccan priestess. She is taken to a Cambion refuge where she meets others like her…….……………………. and that’s where I fizzle out (roughly fifty pages in.)

    I’ve tried plot generators to boost the story forward but they don’t cater to the specific details I already have. I need a new obstacle for the characters. A new conflict. An antagonist. Can anyone throw some suggestions my way going off my original premise please? It would be a great help because my brain is about to explode.

    1. this is just a suggestion:

      at the camp, she meets two men. one who is an older and one who is her age. she falls in love with the younger one as does he with her. then she finds out that the other man is really her father and they both also find out that they are royalty. being king with so much power, her father starts planning something for the kingdom. she doesn’t know what it is. all she knows is that it is going to be very bad for the people. so she has to work with her other friends she met in the camp as well as the other man whom she had fallen in love with, to save her people.

      just a suggestion. hope it helps you! 🙂 and im sorry if it doesnt 🙁

  52. A famous pop star that falls in love with a normal normal girl with major self esteem issues. Any ideas?

  53. Guys, I just need an idea for a fiction book, that’s like science fiction but more fun rather than more informational.

  54. oi, I have no idea what to write for a story and all i got is a cat who is a keeper of this magic eye ball necklace then these cats called 3 tails take the necklace turning the keeper into a spirit thing…

  55. hi. I was just wondering if anyone had a story idea. I just want something that could make people sad and feel sympathy for the characters. something that people can relate to but not a problem about someone in love with a boy or girl they don’t get. just something more real. and upsetting.

    1. You should definitely have a tragic back story. Maybe where the character does some thing they regret deeply(maybe hurting a loved one or partner). But then the loved one dies before they can make up for it. So they try to run away and forget what they did, but just hurt more people in the process. Then they find the perfect partner and then that person hurts them. Then U can finish it off how ever I want

  56. Hi, I’m a high school student who would like to pursue my dream of writing and become an author. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and dream of creating an amazing book series that will be as memorable and magical as Harry Potter. I have an idea for a novel but I don’t know where to start. This is my idea:

    Jack Meyers is a 15-year-old boy who can predict the future through nightmares but doesn’t know it. He has been having nightmares for as long as he can remember. He just doesn’t see the connection between his dreams and events that happen in the world yet. He thinks his nightmares are normal and are nothing. But that all changes when his parents, along with his sister, go missing. So he enrolls the help of one of their family friends, Samuel Ross. When he tells Samuel that he thinks he can predict the future, Samuel enrolls Jack into (name of school; haven’t thought of one yet). (If you have a name for the dome please let me know) There, Jack meets Angst Grinmond, the Headmaster. Angst tells Jack about a prophecy that was foretold many centuries before he was born, about Jack. The fate of the universe as they know it rests in Jack’s hands.

    What do you think? I want to possibly make it into a series and also if you have any ideas on a name for the school please let me know. What do I need to add to it? I want it to include fantasy, teen romance, mystery, drama. You know, the good stuff 🙂 Anyway please let me know if I should add or take stuff out. Ultimately, HELP ME!

  57. I need a story using

  58. Wondering if anyone had a story idea.. about to friends who were on the run from their hometown in North Carolina and ended up living in San Francisco. i want to add kind of a magical twist, maybe have them both as witches.. but not sure how to put it all together! alittle help or inspiration would be great

    1. A lonely fox named Foxy is sitting by a tree, alone. When a friendly kitty comes and is extremely nice to Foxy. Later, Blanky, a sarcastic Blanket, joins them. And they have adventures together.

  59. I was thinking of this as a plot line for a story:

    Alex Sanchez is a 15-year-old who lives in a world where teenagers are discriminated and looked down at just because the elders think that they are lazy, arrogant, and selfish. And once they turn 18, they are seen as regulars of the community and everything beforehand is forgotten What they don’t know is that teenagers are none of these things, but are actually the complete opposite. Alex wants to show the community this somehow, but the government and everyone else, including his own parents, are against him. So he and some of his friends and classmates get together and form a group dedicated to helping the teens of their community find their place, make their mark, and rise up.

    What do you think? Would you read it?

    1. It sounds interesting, but what if they had laws working against them. For every law, they broke there was a severe punishment because the elders believed that beating teenagers and children was most effective in stopping them. At one point near the climax, Alex loses hope only for his friend which was very against it, in the beginning, shares his views. With new hope, he goes against the elders for one last time.

  60. Hi! I need help coming up with a good story with these words; Vicarious, Sanguine, Enigma, Affluent, Servile, Odoriferous, and Notorius

  61. Hi! I have an idea for a book I want to write which uses the metaphor of a puppeteer. I just need help coming up with a climax or a plot. Here’s the idea so far: A young girl called Violet lives with her grandmother. Her grandmother is like a puppeteer, making all her choices. Violet feels trapped because of her grandmother’s ancient way of thinking. Later on in the story, Violet’s grandmother dies(the puppeteer’s strings are cut loose) and she’s on her own. Basically, does anyone have any ideas for what Violet’s grandmother was constricting her about? It will be what Violet is striving to get, but her grandmother is standing in the way.

    P.S. sorry this is all over the place, hope you understand what I mean.

  62. I don’t have any ideas, but it sounds like an amazing story Deniz!
    Start with writing a rough draft, and than work your way from there.
    May I ask why her grandmother, and not her mother, is controlling her? What happened to her parents? Did her grandmother kill them?
    P.S. It sounds amazing!!!!!

  63. Deniz the story line is really amazing i was thinking about her hiding things from her grandmother and her grandmother finds out which is what leads to her grandmothers death. now that she’s on her own she starts fending fro her self by stealing , until like years later she’s like 16 now , one day she tries to steal from a billionaire’s son,he catches her and offers her a job and so on something happens his father dies living him with a inheritance he cannot control on his own. but his fathers company advisers aren’t much help either because they are soul set on the money. he decide he can only trust Olivia. sorry if this not what you were looking for but maybe this is really sorry.
    after the funeral her grandmother was the only relative willing to take he into her custody 12 years after that she has piratically taken over Olivia’s life. Olivia come home one day and finds the door open and a ambulance on the driveway, she get in time to her grandma falling limp on the stretcher. days later she’s going through another funeral and this time. there’s no there for her she wishes her grandma could have let her go out with friends instead of considering things other than studying to be the best nonsense. something like that could work and since Olivia is all grown up now she has an opinion that not her grandma’s. thanks if you read this

  64. Hey, I need to write a 100 word story using the word epiphany, and I am not sure what to do. Can you help me?

  65. I have started off like this, now I am not sure what to do next.
    The glowing stars on the ceiling of the girl’s bedroom were no match for the bright glow of her phone. Her fingers flew across the screen, typing furiously on social media, and her forgotten homework lay scattered on her desk.
    Please can somebody help?

    1. You could add a bit about her parents and hint about the time you could also slightly explain what sort of person she might be

  66. Hi I need some help

    Can any one help me create a plot for a short story with the following words and theme.
    Theme- underwater
    Words- waves, deep, endless, marine, abyss  and aqua.

    1. (your character) was looking forward to a day of relaxation down the beach from the marine boat docks. He wanted to go deep sea diving with some friends, but as they dove deeper into the abyss, they realized their aqua lungs were not filled with oxygen. He had personally checked them prior to going out on the boat, and they were full. Every person on the boat was down there with him now, and they all showed indicators of only half full, so …. WHO DONE IT?

  98. Hello! I am trying to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. I like to write random realistic fiction, and I had a sort of different, futuristic idea about a plot/story line. Here it is:

    In Angel Abbott’s dimension, death goes like this. When you die, you are born soon after as a different person, with a different family, different memories, and a different consciousness. No one has ever remembered their past life. Ever. But when Angel turns thirteen, she has a dream. And in the dream, she sees things that happened to her in her past life. And she – and her best friend – need to find the family of the teenager that she used to be, to heal several open wounds.

    In this dystopian novel, a young girl and her best friend go on a journey to stitch the fabric of her dimension, and rip the fabric of another one.

    Can I have feedback? Please? I’m not so sure about it and I want some good criticism so I can make it better. Again, no hate, I’m only (almost) twelve, so obviously I can’t be expected to write something AMAZING. But I want it to be at least DECENT. Thanks for taking your time to read thins! Feedback would be great! Bye! <3
