    Opinions on this plot please?

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by Elliotrobertson5, Jul 30, 2009.

    -A man and his little girl are going to meet her mother, they pop a tyre on the road in the morning. A car approaches, they ask for a tyre, he says he hasn't got a tyre, but an offer a ride into town to the mechanics store, He drops the man and the girl in town, then drives off. The town is deserted. They walk to the mechanic store and the little girl needs to goto the toilet, he lets her. She goes into the toilet and sees a man with all black robes on, barely sees his face. He waves to her and sits on the toilet, she screams and runs to her dad, Which of whom has disappeared.

    It continues on to a story of survival horror, a little girl trying to find her dad.

    I would appreciate comments. I am working on writing a full story soon. Need a good plot to work from ;)

    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 point to 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?

    (and yes, this is a template post, which should give you an idea of how often this comes up.)

    \Write the story first. Then ask if it is any good. If it isn't, fix the writing.

    and asking others to hand you a plot is not what real writers do...
