1-999 | 1000-1999 | 2000+

This site is designed to help novel, short story, movie, television, play, and video game writers develop new plot ideas. Over 2000 scenarios ranging from the normal to the bizarre are provided as a spark for the imagination. Some plots are sitcom cliches (that might deserve a new twist) while others are unusual happenings gleaned from the world of news and a few odd minds. Other story ideas are subtle suggestions that could be taken several ways - according to your mood or whim at the moment. Some others are everyday situations given an interesting wrinkle. Take a look for yourself.

And since this site will always be a work-in-progress check back for updates. And send us your additions to share with other writers....
