I want to write a story about this small coastal community. I don't have the exact location, but north east coast. It is a fishing community. Lots of boats, lots of tourists in the non winter months. Parasailing, fishing charters, jet-ski rentals, etc. The place is busy with lots of color and water activities. Small mom and pop shops, and eateries with mouth-watering fresh seafood. I want to go there right now for some fresh lobster scampi. The focus is on this boardwalk that travels out a good bit over the water. Tied along this boardwalk are shops, etc. Way out on the tip is a small bookstore. It is square with a walkway all around it with brightly colored chairs. People can buy books and sit and read and enjoy the water. What goes wrong? Some how the bookstore breaks off the boardwalk and starts to float out to sea. How does this happen? I'm not sure yet. A storm the night before? or Some kids are screwing around and thought it would be fun to loosen up some panels or untie something or a sea creature caries it out to sea... all possibilities. Motivation? people are still inside and on this little bookstore and with all the normal boating activity no one really notices what is happening until it's out there fairly far. potential plot hiccups: - I need it to get far enough out there at sea before others/locals go after it in their boats to rescue it. - The rescue is to easy. ideas? I'm pretty happy with the initial idea. I think it needs a little more moxie or problems. It strikes me as something to easy to solve. I like the idea of a sea creature carrying it out but I'm not sure I want to go that big or over the top. My intention is a short story. Thanks in advance.
