Fiction Book Ideas
Coming up with new ideas for fictional books can prove difficult sometimes.
Often, seeing scenarios and selecting a certain one helps.
If you choose a specific scenario from the list below, you may be able to elaborate and create a rough plan for a book
Even if you do not write this book, it can spark new ideas for different books.
A hiker, a map with a part missing, extreme weather
Hint: First off, think about what extreme the weather would be. Would it be a hurricane or a drought? If you choose an extreme weather first, you can decide what situation the hiker is in and what trouble they’re in.
A missing dog, a dug up grave, a stolen watch
Hint: Think of the solution first. Think of why the watch has been stolen, why the dog is missing and why the grave has been dug up. If you determine all the solutions first, the rest of the plot should come easily.
An annoyed neighbour, a Halloween costume, a holiday
Hint: Think of the holiday destination, and the reason for the holiday. Either that, or think of what has annoyed the neighbour and what relevance the Halloween costume has within the story.
A love song, an airport, a baby
Hint: Think of the story behind the love song, and whether the baby is related to the song. Think about why the airport is involved within the story and how significant it is. Is the airport used as an escape?
A worried parent, a missing purse, a crashed car
Hint: Order each one in significance. Is the crashed car the main worry? Is the parent the main worry? Choose which is the main worry to the main character and which has the most significance within the story.
A birthday cake, a match, a tree house
Hint: Think if the match has a significant impact on the tree house, or the birthday cake. Match up one part to another. Is it a simple birthday party? Does anything go wrong?
A deadly disease, a missing group of friends, a knife
Hint: Is the deadly disease a frightening aspect in this story? Is the knife more frightening? Where have the friends gone missing? Think of the back story behind the group of friends going missing, and how significant the others are in regards to this event.
Never ending laughter, a happy couple, a bitter woman
Hint: Think about why the woman is bitter. Find reasons for the happy couples happiness. Explain their never ending laughter and why it is never ending, and what significance this has.
A doll, a broken lamp, a chilling wind
Hint: Is the wind simply because of the time of year? Is the wind significant? How has the lamp broken? Explain each of them and why they should have significance within your story.
