Posted on September 26, 2016
Original Post: A Gift of Short Story
Since, I don’t want to miss any of the requests, I will add an update each time I get one.
There is still time for you to send me a request. Please do so on the original post. Thank you. You have until September 30.
Request # 1:
- By: jrhandleyblog
- “Military science fiction set in 4987AD! Lots of blood, sex and action packed into it, high octane baby!!”
- Some science fiction authors write their story lines touching on the year
- The easier would be to write blood and sex… action could be difficult.. well I’ll need chips and popcorn and soda to get creative. It will happen!
PS: If you guys have any ideas about the action, I may take them. 😉
Request # 2:
- By: Tammy @ a word about books
- *Genre: YA Fantasy (I guess?)
*Character’s gender: Female
*”Synopsis”: [character name] has a gift – and a curse! While she can heal people from almost anything, using an ancient amulet handed down to her by her grandmother , she kills anyone who comes in contact with her bare skin! No wonder that at the hospital, where she volunteers, people miraculously recover from bad diseases! But she completely keeps to herself in every aspect of her life until she meets [male character] – have I mentioned that I suck at giving names too 😅 – he somehow cancels out her ability and therefore becomes the only person she can have contact with. But why did he show up now and how can he neutralize her curse?
Request # 3:
- By: Quintessential Editor
- “Genre: Dystopian Future
- Idea: In a future society truth is valued more than any currency. So much so that when a baby is born a chip is implanted into their brain. This chip prevents the impulse to lie. This system has been in place long enough for everyone to be fitted with a chip. A solar flare from the sun disables all of the chips. However, there are no sparks or pain. They just simply switch off.
- Whatever gender character allows you to be more creative.
- The distance future.”
- Main character: Female
- about 1600 words in
Request # 4:
- By: Nil
- “Genre: Historical
- Idea: The MC has been training to assassinate the king for years. However, she ends up finding out that she is actually the king’s long lost daughter.

- thinking the story will happen during the winter season

It’s so cool seeing all of the ideas people have left for you! I’ve said it before, but this was such a brilliant idea. Really, you could generate entire book ideas from some of these snippets. What’s also really amazing about this is you are putting your fingers directly on the pulse of what people want to read. In a way, each one of these ideas offer great insight into what people are interested in, here and now.
