Writing Question

Any Good Book Ideas??

I'm trying to write a book. But the problem is, I can't think of any good ideas to write about. I don't like vampires or Twilight or anything, and I would like it not to have any bad messages in it. Like kid-friendly and teen-friendly. Good for kids all ages. Thanks!

Omg, I didn't see the part where you said "for kids all ages". *blushes* Well....hopefully my ideas aren't that off? xD

sapherequeen said:
Okay, I'll try....

1) Teenagers with mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar, or multiple personality disorder. It would be interesting research (you may have to google the illness before writing), and you may find yourself enjoying writing the story, and perhaps gain more ideas from it :)
That's what I usually tend to do.

2) A 22-year-old young girl was sneaking out, getting high, getting drunk, partying hard nonstop, and verbally and physically abusing her younger sister. The girl comes home after five months or so in rehab, and reunites with her family. But the point of view can be given to the younger sister, who isn't ready to forgive her older sister to say the least. The younger sister has hatred, anger, and hurt after what she's been put through. And she resents that everyone is treating the older sister like a queen, like nothing ever happened, like the younger sister wasn't a victim at all. The story could focus on the younger and older sister's feelings, and how they slowly regain the bond they used to have a long, long, long time ago.

3) A girl finds out not only that she is a lesbian, but she has fallen in love with her popular cheerleader stepsister.

4) A teenage boy finds himself with drinking problems, dangerously rebellious behavior, and on the path to a destructive life. But then he finds out that the girlfriend who allegedly abandoned him nine months ago was actually pregnant, and had died after giving birth to their son (or daughter, depends on what you would choose :D). Since the boy is 18-years-old and a legal adult, he gets custody of the baby boy. The teenage boy immediately falls in love with his son, and takes the vow to change his life by going back to school, graduating, and creating a life for for his child and himself.

6) A 12-year-old witnesses a 13-year-old deaf classmate almost being raped, and this event creates a bond between the two. Within their friendship, they decide to help each other reshape their lives and deal with the problems that used to leave them completely hopeless before they met each other.

7) (Okay, my last idea)
A teenage girl finds herself in a harrowing situation when her older sister, a Junior, becomes pregnant after spending a night with the teenage girl's soon-to-be boyfriend. How can this girl find the strength to forgive her sister and let the love she felt for her crush go? :)


Hope I helped you out!!

Well, I also think that it'd be better for the author to come up with an idea of their own, but I also believe that they need a little kick to get going. An inspiration. Dreams also help with coming up with fun crazy or really cool ideas.

1. A (teen, adult, child, you pick) develop this strange power, and is soon hunted down by all kinds of demon hunters. They finds out her real mother is the demon of all demons, a death goddess.

2. (character) is convicted for the an onslaught of mass murder, and is found guilty despite their innocence. (Character) is sent to this crazy prison or survival game, finding out who the real culprit of the murder.

As you can see, these ideas are what /I'm/ interested in. They're different with everyone, so don't be discouraged. Don't do a topic that everyone is interested in, like you said about Twilight and Vampires. Do something /you/ want. Sometimes you just have to pick little bits of other topics and form your own.

I don't mean this in a rude or bad way, but I think a book idea should come from the author himself/herself (unless you don't want to publish it). Anything else will not feel personal to you anymore after a while. Trust me, when there's really something you feel the need to write about, the words will flow much more easily. When writing seems forced or if you can't relate to your own story - it's not right. Just writing a book in order to say "I have writen a book" is pure arrogance. Take your time and when the inspiration comes you'll know you should start working on a book.

Something really cute and fun!!! A nice white romance story, but where their personalities don't quite match up, or at least it seems that way. Or you could do something with some sort of magic being released into the world. Or (although I did something similar to this) a story of a girl who lost her lover but refuses to believe he's gone, and continues the romance with his phantom, who may or may not be real, but she keeps it all a secret. And if you really can't think of anything you can try fanfiction. I hope this helps!!!

How about something fey related? Or maybe a mystery? Oh, definetly add some adventure into it. People of all ages love a good interesting story. Maybe add a little bit of romance, just to get the audience hooked. Bam! At least twenty people will love your story! And twenty people is a good amount, the audience will also give lots of constructive comments.

You may do best to start with those "bad messages" you don't want to condone in your story. Think about what would cause those kinds of things in your world, is it paranormal, supernatural, or human? Then you have an antagonist. Make your protagonist the age of your audience. Now your book is sending the message that whatever message you chose (drug abuse, child abduction, theft, murder) is evil. For example if you chose supernatural and child abduction then your journey begins with the question "What is taking the kids, and why?" Coincidentally, this is the same question your main character will be asking when they set out to solve the case. This simple equation will lead you to a story that is meaningful to you and will fill you with questions that need to be answered. Those questions will fuel your story, and as you answer them the story will begin to take life.

Additional Examples:

Murder, Human. People are being killed, is this a murder mystery, or is there a corrupt government killing it's citizens for some kind of ulterior motive?

Paranormal, Theft. Things are going missing from your protagonists home. He/She discovers it is a spirit. (this one can go anywhere from here, but you have to answer the questions your mind is already asking.

Drug abuse, Supernatural. There's a new drug in town that is hooking people left and right. Your character finds that this drug is distributed by a supernatural being.

Once you pick and examine some things together you should be filled with questions, and they will mostly start with "Why." Only you can answer them, and when you do you will have the bones of a story in your head. I will assume from your question that you know what to do with those bones, if not look up the Snowflake Method.

I hope this helps you. Remember not to cage yourself in the limited examples I gave you here. The possibilities are endless.

or about how a kid meets a wizard and gains magical powers. He practices honest and good witchcraft and helps people with healing. He then discovers that the old wizard has some kind of enchanted spell which only passes down once he teaches his wizardry to next person and now he's under magic spell. But since he's good kid, he fights the demon and find out how to break the spell without transfering the powers.

As a person who has come up with several story ideas, but never executed any of them, I feel like I need something truly compelling me to write, something that I want to write. I'm more a science fiction to fantasy writer, but if you're not that's ok. I think the best story I ever had that I have much of the plot done, but I was 10 when I started so it would've been worse so edit it how you will. I only got through the first act of the story, then stopped. But this was 20 pages, which is decently impressive for a first piece of a story a 10 year old made. The plot went like this:
A boy, a month after his birth, has his mother die from a snake bite and the boy's father blames the boy for it. The boy just goes through his life(just skip time a couple years) and in high school makes enemies with a jock. How he ended up being his enemy was that they tried robbing a store together, but a civilian had a gun and drove them out, then called the police. The jock ends up spraining his ankle being panicked in the run, and the boy(now a high schooler) leaves him for the cops. And now he has to leave his family, as the civilian knew who he was and where he lived. Several years later, while working at his job the boy(college-ish) sees the jock again, and the jock calls the cops and he boy has to run after getting into a fight with the jock, and the jock makes it look unprovoked. He gets away to an alley, where someone was watching him. This someone can bend elements of fire and electricity, and he tells the boy he can bend far more than just fire and electricity, he is the guild's chosen. After his he begins to train and you can figure the rest out

I always thought that perhaps an out-of-the-way idea like this would be good, and pretty original (please correct me if I'm wrong):
A guy (or girl, your choice) somehow comes to acquire a button (or something) that can completely change your life from the inside out. Say, you're a 'filthy hobo' and suddenly become 'rich and famous'. Another entire life is fabricated for you, but you keep all your old memories and everything, just everything around you has changed and no-one remembers anything about the world before. However, the life you get after you press the button ain't always a good one, so it's a random draw. Dunno if there's a way out though... *P.S, please, please don't completely copyright this story, I might have a use for it later.*

I've started a book about a girl who's dad left her and her mom when she was really young. She is on a synchronized swinging team in her town. Suddenly the biggest synchronized swinging in the world comes to her town to help coach her team, and he ends up being her dad. Then she has to make one of the hardest choices ever. Go with her dad, or stay with her mom in her small town with all her friends and where she grew up. Then she gets an idea. What if she gets her parents back together. She tries and after a little while the parents realize they still love each other. They get back together, with her dad being the new head coach of her team, and taking her team to win state, and eventually to the olympics where she follows after his footsteps of being a famous synchronized swinger.

I can't tell if this people would want to read this book. It is my first book that I've ever written, and I don't know if it is even worth finishing if people aren't going to like it. What is your perspective on what I wrote above? Would you read it?
