Ideas for a novel?
March 7, 2011 2:53pm CST
Any ideas for writing a novel? Used to write stories as a kid and kind of wt to get back into it. Problem is I lack a credible idea to be the catalyst for my novel writing. Can anybody help? Any suggestion welcome from the beautiful to the absurd.

I think that to be original, the idea has to come from you. About trying to set those non-credible ideas you have in a futuristic setting? Less pressure for realisticness there.

I think it depends on your target reader. As a reader, I like adventure novels with original ideas and fun characters. You can actually base your characters on real-life personalities that you know. You can try an adventure novel about war and politics. You can also write about a brand new world outside the earth. I like sci-fi.
