Short Story Ideas
Need a short story idea?
If you're in need of some musing, here are three ideas you can use to create a great short story.
Can you imagine what it would like to be a fetus growing in the womb of it's mother? Think "look who's talking". What if your mind was more conscious and aware then most adults think an unborn babies mind would be.
What would you be doing and thinking about in there?
What would you think about noises you heard, movements that happened or foods your mom ate?
When would you know it was time to come out?
Do you have a cat? What do you think your cat does all day? If you could be an invisible shadow around your cat, where do you imagine that the going during the day or night? What do they think about or do?
You know your furry friend better than anyone, aside from themselves, which means writing a short story about being your cat for a day, could be a very interesting story!
Imagine that you are a police inspector, or maybe an FBI detective, and you've found yourself investigating a rather interesting case... You spend all your time, day and night, following the trail of missing people who all seem to lead to one place... Your investigations lead you to the home of some witches and what you see when you spy on them, are some crazy supernatural events.
Though strangely, you find that the witches you first thought were the source of the disappearances, are actually good and trying to fight the eternal fight against evil. What do you do? Do you expose them as freaks of nature, or do you help them fight the good fight?
