Write about a world that heavily revolves around music. Now imagine that a person with hardly musical talent grows up here. What is life like? Are the people of this island being brainwashed by music? Can this person teach the musically inclined anything? Or is this person shut off from their world? Hunted down because he “insulted” a King or Queen with his or her attempt at music? How far will your character go to fit in? Or escape?

I’m sick of heroines who don’t think they are smart or beautiful or awesome. Give me a woman who knows her own self worth. Give me a woman who makes the other characters live up to her expectations.

Totally doing this!

The keys are in your hands, writers.

Write about someone who has a problem when he or she embraces anyone— a superpower activates. What is this power? Mind reading? Drains the other’s energy? Can this person see the other’s future?

How does this character deal with the superpower? Recoil from anyone’s touch? Open a shop for readings (whether if this is honest or to drain people of their energy for personal gain)?

Write about a world in which technology has gotten so powerful that it controls all of its victims into doing its will. Is this a cautionary tale?
