I thought it would be a really nice idea to pin a topic like this up, where anyone on the board can reply and just list all sorts of different ideas that have ever popped into their head. I think it would be a great place to look for anyone lacking inspiration for plot ideas, especially if a lot of people randomly throw ideas in that pop into their head.
It can be big plot ideas or small plot ideas. Friendship plots, Romantic plots. Sickness plots. Betrayal plots. I know people get ideas in their head all of the time, maybe from a book or a movie, or something that's happened to them or someone they know in real life. But you can't use every plot that pops into your head. Hey, but it can always be helpful to someone else! (:
So go ahead and post them here!
FRIENDSHIP PLOTSTRAGEDY PLOTS
- An arranged marriage.
