All of my stories come to a point where it's boring or nothing else can be written. Please don't say things like "You shouldn't be asking for ideas" =( I need to write--I'll do whatever it takes to be a writer!!! Please help me with ideas!

Take advice for me, and you won't regret it. (I swear. EVERYONE loves my stories, and I won 4/5 story competitions I entered)


IDEAS:
People trying to avoid getting captured/killed by someone/something

Kids at a boarding school are getting haunted by ghosts

A girl with no friends, with a passion to dance, but her family can't affoard dance lessons.


(That's all I can think of right now.)

Wait, why am I giving you these ideas and not keeping them for myself? Ahhh, What the hell, I'm nice. (: Goodluck with your writing!

Ooo! I think I have a good one... it's based on a true story and experience of mine. Four best friends had been seperated from each other when they were in second grade. In fifth grade, they're all in the same school but they don't realize it. One of the best friends knows and is determined to become best friends again, thus the Inseparable Girls Club is formed. For sixth grade, they're going to be seperated again for middle school--what will they do?! Is that good?

This is a real experience for me because one best friend was moving and the other four were going to different middle schools than me. But in this story, they'll find a way to stay together because they're the Inseparable Girls. =) Is that good?

I don't know, but I think I've head that before...Nah. I think I read this thread twice..

Anyways, I'll give you some constructive critsizim now...may not be the nicest critiszim, but I'll try being nice...

First, how would someone forget their friends from Grade 2? Did they stay friends until Grade 3 or 4? Because if they did, they really shouldn't of forgotten them. Even if they seperated for one year, someone doesn't forget a loved one over a year. Second, why is it so coincedental all girls go to the same school? Grade 6-8 is considered 'middle school', so they really couldn't of been seperated for about two years from Grade 2 to Grade 5. Even if one or two of the girls moved, why did they move back? When you move, you don't really move back. All the planets must've lined up when Girl A moved back and went to the SAME school the others are going to, but apparently their suffering from anmesia.
Third, their all going to diffeent schools. This is what email or phone numbers is for.

In conclusion, it sounds like a good story, but you have WAY too many plotholes. A few plotholes are alright, but this many? Sorry. I'm really sorry if me reveiw of your outlined story is harsh, but I'm not the nicest critic out there.

Thats already a story. In fact it's a movie O_O


Find a genre you like in particular then try to build something.

For me, I always get ideas from songs ;D

I agree with Goggle.

But, if you do make some edits and stuff I'm sure you could fix those issues ;D

The only reason your stories come to a dead end or turn boring is because you think that's what is always gonna happen. Remember that your imagination has no limits. If it's just writer's block, listen to music or read other books for inspiration.
