So I have a story idea. The only problem is that it seems very typical. So far I've got it's about a photojournalist (and already the sighs) who obviously see's something he shouldn't then has to deal with the consuquences, yada yada yada. I've got a few subtle ways to make it unique (I hope), but for the most part it just seems like it would be a bland story. the only realy reason I'm writing this is because of the character: he is anything but an action hero. He's not a dufus or the type who walks right past a falling piano whilst his attempted kidnappers meet it head on, all oblivious. No, he simply isn't meant to take on assassins and consperacies. He's good at his job, but can't handle the normal drudgeries of day-to-day tasks. His place is a mess, he never remembers peoples birthdays, his love life (which will be a joke throughout the story) is filled with pissed off ex's. Hope I'm not ramballing too much, but if I am, well you're here so you must like to read. Anyhoo, the point: I was thinking of making it a futuristic kinda thing, but I don't know. Tips, advice, hi's, anything would be nice. P.S. It's 1:25 am, I'm on two hours of sleep from last night, and my depressed cat won't leave me alone. Good day.
