I thought this might be an interactive way to write a story. I have a few plot ideas. I'll write a one/two sentence synopsis for each. Let me know if you like any of them. Or none of them! Or are confused by any of them. Thanks! 1. A failed painter meets a spontaneous young woman whose inspiration improves the quality of his work. Yet when her behaviour becomes more dangerous, he is forced to cut her out of his life, perhaps saving his sanity but also diminishing his creative power. 2. A filmmaker is spurred on by his wife to direct his first feature and - beginning to believe himself a genius - has an affair with the starring actress with disastrous consequences for both his marriage and work. 3. A procrastinating aspiring stand up comedian keeps creating conditions to delay his move to New York, first saying he needs to study more craft, then read more, then travel more until finally real life events from the covid19 crisis make it impossible for him to move and perform comedy 4. A happily married family man has a nightmare that he had murdered someone as a child and buried the body in his old garden and so driven mad with a desire to dispel the fear in his mind, he goes back to check. Yet in this manic obsession with his dream, he neglects a very real danger to his family which tragically takes their life in his absence. 5. An alcoholic writer has his autobiographical script green lit in Hollywood and a young director casts him in the starring role. Yet with filming almost complete, his alcoholism - the very thing that had driven him to this point - derails the entire project. 6. A teenager learns to play popular songs on the piano in hopes of impressing a girl, but she ignores his performance at the school. This rejection inspires him to write a successful song, which she also ignores. Finally when he lets go of the pretense of making music, he gets her attention only to realise he prefers his relationship to his instrument.
