    Idea?

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by WritersBlock, Apr 24, 2010.

    Hey all- I was wondering if I could give a bit of a plot synopsis of one of my ideas to see what you think. However, I do not know if this is the right place to do so I will not until I know if it is right or not.

    A story concept means nothing. I can tell you now, it has been done before. What matters is how you write it, the characterization, the flow, the imagery, all of it.

    There's no benefit in asking what other people think of the concept! They'll either say,"Sounds great," or, "it sounds like a ripoff of..."

    If the idea stirs you, write it. Then ask people what they think of the final story. After they tell you what they don't like about it, revise it, usually several times, until you're happy with it or until you throw up your hands and say the hell with it.

    Please read this thread about What is Plot Creation and Development?
