8 Additional Story Premises

I spent far to much time thinking about this today; procrastination comes in many forms but, I want to make some value out of my wasted time. Regardless, I did in fact spend an hour on this but I spent an hour on this var too late and only got to 8 entries.

  1. Planting Trees, I did have an idea for a story with this title earlier, but I had a far more interesting idea for this one. – A tribe of forest dwellers believes that when someone dies, his soul gets reincarnated into a tree. They make sure to plant the trees and do the proper ritual right before people die, and depending on how they die, they plant a different tree to redeem their soul and to bring them closer to rebirth. Recently a lot of warrior trees have been being planted. The story follows a tree planter and his conversation with an elder on how he might become a warrior tree soon himself…
  2. When Life Give Lenard Lemons – This story follows the story of Lenard, who is locked in an asylum (or maybe actual prison I’m not sure yet). Lenard is obsessed with escaping, and it covers his conversations and his plans on how he can use the lemons to escape…
  3. A Sharp Mind – Reyna sees things in what people say; she can cut to the truth inside of people’s words she, despite being young, realizes and sees things communicated that others her age and older often miss. Reyna knows the reality of what is being said, she has to, she gets it, and the people around her have to know, they have to see…

  4. Try Again Tomorrow – You want the answers? Why should you go on? What to do in your relationship? Mistress Jearnique has the answers. Many have come to her, and many have left all satisfied, having found a new brilliance in their lives. But why did she tell me to try again tomorrow…
  5. Making Music – An musician who looks in disdain at the music the commoners listen to, their unrefined ears satisfied by simple repetition, yet not appreciating real complexity. Goes to work every day writes some songs some simple pieces to get the money in, and helps perpetuate the idea of thoughtless music plebs by writing the music he thinks they want…
  6. The Giraffe – The Giraffe is shameless, nobody likes him, but he seems not to care. He’s unwilling to accept his place, and while the others find their satisfaction in taring him down, he works and works and knows he has a brighter future. This story follows a boy nicknamed the giraffe, and as he pulls himself from nothing to becoming the head of a large company that helps make products that can be used by people with genetic conditions that affect their hight and the proportions of their limbs. But he’s conflicted would he ever have become who he is if he was satisfied in the place the world made for him? Is he depriving others like him of the motivation to succeed?…
  7. Living In Someone’s Else’s House – This building is owned by someone else, this entire town is owned by someone else. You don’t have ownership over anything you do, anything you make; if they wanted, you wouldn’t even be able to communicate with the people around you. Lenny cares he does all he can to be self-sufficient, but in a world ruled by free products and digital communication, Lenny can’t help but rely on stuff he doesn’t have any control over. To Lenny, self-sufficiency is a myth, but it’s a myth that gets further and further away with each passing hour. But the worst part is, the very worst thing is that nobody cares and as he searches for an answer and eventually he finds it…
  8. Highminded Hogwash – Parson believes in complete mastery that all individuals have complete ownership of themselves, their actions, and all they know. And Parson knows he deserves what he has, he owns it he learned it he owes nothing to others and he will do what he can to make others as smart and well educated like him. But than Parson’s view is challenged by one of the people he was trying to help he only has what he has because he was born with it isn’t it natural that he gives his birth benefits to those more in need. Parson does so, and as he sees all that he built to collapse in the hands of incompetents, he realizes the error in his methods and works to create something he won fully that he can use to truly help as he did originally…

A side note about my Not Being a Hypocrite page, I created it in hopes of making myself more honest, and so that content I promised to make that I felt didn’t belong on the main blog. Despite the fact, I put nearly everything on the blog, and I did end up being a bit of a hypocrite, as you can see by the lack of content on the page, I’m getting back to posting things there. Don’t feel at all obliged to read what I write there. I only post things there in an attempt to keep promises.
I put off writing this because I was procrastinating on actually writing the story. (the stories are short, but they Have to be perfect, and I still find them flawed after writing them. I’m doing this to practice goddammit; I have to be willing to make something less than perfect because even if I think it’s perfect, it isn’t. I’ll go back to making footnotes; this is getting ridiculous.) I’ll edit it and put it up tomorrow.
