I’ve been collecting story ideas for years. I have a folder on my hard drive that has 226 files with little snippets of story ideas. Recently when browsing through them, I started reading some of the older file names.
They were hilarious. The fun part was opening the file to see if what I thought the story idea was matched the title. So here are the top ten badly named story ideas.
10. A scroll for all occasions
9. Bridge of Retribution
8. 18th Century Lady and space assassin
7. Chicky Death Face
6. Space Fish
5. Brain Worm Girl
3. Choice on a Raft
2. Fiddler Pie
1. Wolf and Alien Island
Any guesses at the ideas inside?

#2 Fiddler Pie – Fantasy adventure about a musician that feeds his guests sweets that turn them into dancing servants for 7 years.
#6 Space Fish – Children’s story about a boy on a space mission with his goldfish.
Would like to read one of those. Hey wait! I’m a writer…..
Oh, I love those ideas! What are you thinking short stories? I bet they would be fun. Let me know if you finish them. 🙂
Yes, I was thinking short stories. I will let you know if I do write them. Hope you plan on telling us what your original idea was. I love how we can see or read the same thing but come up with many ideas..all different.
I figured I’d list them in another blog post. See what other people thought they were. 🙂
Well, August is two weeks away…
So Brain Worm Girl was so bad she got two mentions?
Well, it was very bad. I replaces it with the 18th Century Lady and space assassin idea.
