Short Story Ideas Please?!

So I’ve recently been having these urges to do something creative. Whether it be a drawing or a short story. What I am asking from my lovely followers is…an idea of what to write my short story on for you guys to read. I don’t mind how crazy, romantic, weird etc just let me know what you would like to read & that can be my goal! 🙂

So guys please comment some ideas so I can get busy 😉

  1. you could try your hand at some fan fiction, write about yourself but in a fictional sense, base a character on you or someone you know

    1. I actually really love the sound of this! I was thinking about it all last night after reading your comment.. I am definitely going to do this. I will let you know when I’ve finished & uploaded it 🙂 How are you anyway?

      1. im alright, no internet til 6th august from tonight, but am gna work on some new sounds and try get a good spec letter done for sound design, hope ur good

  2. Hmm… well I came up with this idea for me to write but I have something else I should be writing instead so I’ll tell you and you can run with it. The idea is about an old drunken wizard named Brandolf the Garbled, who has a curse when he gets drunk he has aphasia, so the words he is saying don’t mean what he thinks they mean. Part of the curse is that he thinks he is speaking more clearly the more he drinks. Somewhere someone needs to tell him, “You shall not pass” probably getting denied entry into a pub. It’s supposed to be funny, so probably best not to go tragic… maybe someone tries to help him remove the curse. I’ll let you figure it out. 🙂 Good luck!

    1. Hello!! 🙂

      Thanks for helping me out here *phew* :D. I feel grateful you would let me have a go with your ideas on this :)! I’m not sure I could make a better story out of it though but I shall give this one a go.
      I will be letting you know when I’ve come up with something!

      All the best, stay in touch!

    1. Hey Francis,
      Thank you for taking time to send over a suggestion! I find that quite challenging so I will definitely give that one a go! I have just quickly had a browse through your blog & it looks really interesting. When I get some time I am going to read through some of your short stories for sure!
      Thanks again, feel free to drop by anytime. I appreciate your help 🙂

    1. Hey girl!

      Oooo I really love the sound of that one! I love thinking up little fantasies etc.. I know for sure I can work with this 🙂
      Thanks for dropping by, Hope you are well? Thanks also for helping me out here, really appreciate it! 🙂

      1. I am so glad that you like that idea! 🙂 I hope you share some of what you write! Recently I have been going up and down a lot. But I am hanging in there. I hope that you are doing well too!

      2. I really do! 🙂 I will definitely share it even if it’s rubbish I really appreciate all your help and feedback!
        Also Anna you know you have my email add & can email me whenever you want! I am just coming out of a bad time too, meltdown after meltdown it seems GRRR. I’m here if you want to talk about anything! Sometimes it helps to just get it all off your chest.
        If you need me I’m here. Don’t feel alone in this!

    1. Hello 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and taking time out to help me out here! Really appreciate that and the lovely comments!
      See that sounds interesting I never really thought about writing about my opinions in a short story..Could be quite challenging but I love a challenge 🙂

    1. Hey Daniel,

      Nice to hear from you again! How have you been? It’s been a while. .
      Now that sounds very unique & different! I love unique ideas, very much up my street 😉 Only problem is..I no longer own a scrabble board! I gave it to charity a while back. Maybe there’s an app or something on my phone I could use with scrabble on it? I’ll have a look.

      Thanks for that brilliant idea! I love it!

  3. You’ve already got a lot of pretty damn good suggestions, but I guess I may as well toss my idea in the hat. When I write I will always have a line I want to use in a story, then the idea evolves from that. The most recent line being:
    “The soft clicks of a her keyboard echoed around the room, slowly building up speed.”

    1. Hey Snababo,

      I know I’m really impressed with all the suggestions! Wow I really like the sound of that! I usually get a sentence pop into mind and want to work around that, so it should be quite fun making a list of loads of different ones and chucking them in a hat & choosing that way!
      I am definitely going to try out this method with my short story, thanks for the input really interesting! 🙂

  4. Ethereal being that can fly around earth and sends faeries to speak to 3-dimensional beings to help aid them along the path of complete sorrow of the decay of the planet. Or something to do with clones, where ghost’s basically control them and really there is some kind of war between the ghosts, some of them want the clones to be free and not carry out their own means of destruction of nature?

    1. Hey,

      Thanks for sharing your ideas I really appreciate your help! They look really interesting! I’m not sure if I will do that well with those ideas but I will give them a blast 😀

      1. Sure, well those idea’s come from me thinking about making a cartoon like animation about a sci-fi sort of anime story like that recently 🙂 Hope you do well with your stories 🙂

  5. Kept thinking about this since you posted it, but it’s so difficult to come up with something! 🙂 How do you normally get your inspiration? Could you perhaps search for a word through Google images and pick one out that inspires you to write something about? For example the word “passageway” will show you some remarkable images

    1. Ok you need to tell me your name I feel like I know you but feel stupid not knowing your name 😦 lol..
      Thanks for sharing though I’m glad you commented. Sounds crazy but I usually just get a sentence or word come to mind then have to write it down if not I’ll forget. Then I tend to stem my poetry or writings from there. I am looking to start travelling around the UK when I start writing for my book for inspiration different to the norm. For the whole short story idea though I’m a bit lost, I’ve never really written a short story intentionally or a long one. I know it’s going to be a short one but you know what I mean..

      I really like the idea of that! I’m going to go on to Google now and search passageway which will probably lead on to more 😉

      Thanks again! 🙂

      1. Thanks for your reply! So a word or sentence can ignite your poetry and writings. Traveling also sounds like a great idea to get some fresh ideas!

        OK, let’s see if I can contribute something constructive. How about “the herd mentality”. It always seems easier for people to follow the masses instead of going your own (often more sensible) way.

        Sorry, that’s my fault! Should have mentioned my name somewhere. Now I feel stupid. 🙂 It’s Derran (or Darren… traditional English spelling will also work 😉 )

      2. Yes, I am definitely looking forward to travelling around a bit! Just want to get this anxiety under control a bit more before I do it. That’s why I’m thinking to start publishing short story posts on here before I go ahead with my book 🙂

        Have you posted anymore bike vids? You will have to let me know I’m rubbish at keeping up with Reader on here.

        I’d LOVE to write about the herd mentality, simply because it drives me insane to see it everywhere! Think I could give that a go! Does it annoy you too to see that happening everywhere?

        Thanks Darren for all your help 😀 Feels nice to finally address you by your name 😀
