If you're just hearing about #RANDOMfest for the first time, Click Here for a full description, and there's still time to sign up below. The short version of this entertaining activity - find a random story idea you have that never went anywhere and share it with us in your own blog.
If you've got shorter ideas - a single sentence or maybe just a story title, we're also going to try and tweet them all day long with the #RANDOMfest hashtag, so join us there ^_^
I have tons of these things. My 'Writing' folder has aproximately 300 documents in it. A lot of these ideas have gone somewhere in one for or another, but I pulled out one that was awesomely vauge to share today:
Document Name: Dream from last night.doc (this file is at least five years old)
First two paragraphs:
Dream from last night, that all the while that I was dreaming it seemed like it might lend itself to a really good story, but now that I’m conscious I’m not so sure.
Girl ends up on the porch of her best friends house with a couple of bags of suitcases, she’s been kicked out of her own home for some reason. Something to do with a fight with her father, or brother, something. Maybe she just can’t afford to pay her rent any more, or her roommate doesn’t want her around any more. I guess she’s not the super sweet like-able type of character I usually put in my stories. She has some friends and then there’s some people who just don’t care one way or the other and others who just don’t like her. That would explain how she managed to lose her place to live.
