It's summer holidays for me, because I don't live in the northern hemisphere. I'm going to write a short story. I know it's fairly possible that I will fail in the two months so I've given myself low standards to meet.
It's going to be a short story. I'm planning on reaching 2000 words before thinking about going further. I'm not sure what it's going to be about but I do have some ideas floating around in my head for various scenarios and other things. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas floating around in their head that they'd be cool with sharing (you selfish bastard) that they'd be fine with me bouncing off that.

Thinking of you, Starcraft related maybe? Some fictional writing of some guy who goes poor and then finds SC2 and goes pro and wins a tournament and how he has to deal with the pressure and the other stuff that pro players have to deal with.

In a more organized way:

Introduction:Talk about his childhood and maybe he had parents who passed away, or lives in a third-world country and he has daily struggles.

Rising action: He finds SC2 and he learns from various things

Climax: Would be where he wins the tournament and feels extremely happy for himself

Falling action: He has to deal with constant pressure and the (crappy (see Reddit Razz)) communities on how they like to pitchfork things that just make him feel bad.

Conclusion: Could be that he overcomes it with say, joining a team; a dinner with pro players and he hears how they overcome it; motivation from his home country; etc;.

That sounds really sports movie-esque. I noticed that many people my age tend to write stories like that about baseball and stuff. I've never actually tried that and it's not really my style, but I'll try incorporate some of this into my ideas that I already have. Cheers.

Really? Are the smart people in Australia not as simple-minded as I thought? Haha I know here that those stories would rarely exist because all the people who did sports were either bad at writing stories like that or just weren't in advanced classes. And even then, all the advanced students who did do sports had terrible stories. Razz

Oh, I meant more like the type of story or the inspiration for their 9th grade assessment pieces. I remember hearing many rugby stories (I guess like gridiron for you Muricans) that were poorly graded and written like a long facebook status. I think I'll start tonight after watching Abraham guy: vampire slayer (eww....rooting vampires...)

So very true.
How about a long, epic battle. That's the whole story. Could be set in a different universe...
whatever. And you describe a bit of their background and what they're fighting for.

You side with both armies, giving unbiased perspectives of their fighting.

You could pull a main character out of each army and focus on them more specifically and use their actions and interactions with their armies as a way of letting the readers know what's going down.

It would be fun to invent weapons and other stuff. Experiment with tactical formations.
The characters wouldn't necessarily have to be human. There could be different species of animals fighting...

It would be hectic. And I would read it - (that's what I'm after - something I'll read). I'm sure many people would be interested.

But just imagine... a whole book on just one battle...

I'm really digging Baller's idea. Give narrative for the battle and more personal for each "hero". I could pull a backstory for each hero like what M suggested.
EDIT: Baller, since you're the primary audience, what do you think about maybe some high fantasy?EDIT 2: That Abraham movie was the most terrible thing I've ever seen. I feel sorry for the actors.

It has started!!! It took a few hours to get ~100 words. I think this'll only be for the descriptive scene setting part though, it should speed up once I get to fighting.

Only a 100 to set the scene? Not any more needed? Or will an illustration help?
