View Full Version : TV Tropes - Get Your Dose of Ideas

April 10th, 2011, 06:02 AM
So you're lost in your writing and haven't an idea what to do next. The plot is there, but somehow you need a fresh idea just to run the story along. Or perhaps you need a new, personality-driven character to spark off an idea.

Here's something for you: TVTropes.org (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage)

This site features dozens of tropes for you to develop your story with and from these tropes perhaps an idea can spark in your head. Of course, you may give your story a dose of Chandler's Law (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ptitlepblp18h5) so much so that it risks looking like DeusExMachina (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeusExMachina), but at least you got ideas flowing back in your story, right?

Oh, and they feature a story idea generator, too. It's here: Story Generator - TVTropes.org (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/storygen.php)

Have fun trope hunting! :)
