Story Ideas Are Everywhere!
The town is only about an hour away from where I live. A friend of my husband's lives there and invited us to come and watch the parade. Due to a change in our normal plans, we gladly accepted.
Of course, many things I saw triggered my writer's creativity. Here are a few story ideas I came up with while watching the parade.
Hero occupation: Restore antique tractors
Heroine occupation/hobby: Parade planner. Story line: Town wants to cancel the annual parade.
Hero or Heroine could be a 4H Leader and are trying to help a trouble teen.
Hero and Heroine are competitors in a BBQ contest.
Heroine is trying to raise money for a community memorial garden. The Hero plans to expand his company on the site.
The heroine plans an elaborate float and has to ask the hero, a local carpenter she doesn't get along with, for help.
The parade lasted one and gave many ideas to consider for a short story or a book. What is the last event you attended that gave you a story idea?
