A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

#318: Life Coach

More on yesterday's idea.

The Life Coach will help you succeed at everything in life -- work, health, fitness, relationship. He'll push you till you either succeed or die and nothing in between.

I'm picturing a pretty interesting thriller that starts with a man signing up for some dodgy online life coach and they set some goals but the guy gives in fairly easily and then he shows up randomly at the guy's house, kills the cat, leaves a note with an inspirational quote.
The thriller will unfurl until the life coach is torturing this guy by not letting him fail (which is a right as a human being.)

#317: The Run Coach

A serial killer who has a peculiar way of torturing his victims. He comes at you with a gun and orders you to run and he takes you on giant ultra-marathon length runs and says if you stop you die.

Nobody makes it because he always pushes them too far.
They end with a silenced bullet in their head or a mouthful of his cyanide water.

#315: The Men Of Bees

Long in the future. Post-
apoc. People are living in small communities.

One small township --
Kaybel -- has a perimeter wall, and beyond that lies a river.

Legend has it in the town that one should never cross the river, for that is the end of the earth, and all who've crossed have disappeared.

There are others though, on the other side of the river. Odd looking people who walk in smoke and hum like bees.

"Don't look at them," the
A young girl goes to the river and sees one of the men of bees. It lures her and she falls in the river and is dragged downstream. Maybe she has to find her way home through a man-sized bee-hive? I have no idea lol.

#314: One more post-
apoc thriller for the fun.

The Ant-Riders

With the
horns they came from the depths. Riding on the backs of giant ants, small towns lost in the night, but they swarmed so quickly, they rode out and devoured towns and cities.

The response from the government was to blow it all up, and they tried, only destroying more of the world.

Now what remains of the government and its armed forces are waging a final war with the insects.

And the civilians are trying to get by, or mongrels as they're now referred to as.

One little boy in particular.

Until he has a dream, and he suddenly knows the key to saving the world.
One long adventure through the battle-torn world till he finds himself in the very core of the Ant-Rider's world.

Someone really shit the bed.

A guy named Nyarlathotep has been wandering the world, reading from the Necronomicon and changing the shape of the Earth and its people around him.

80% of the population have turned into tentacled nightmare-beasts, the landscape and the weather have become barren and there are constant storms, and now, as Nyarlathotep's plan finally comes to pass, there is a great portal opening in the sky, through which we see a great eye of one of the Great Ones -- Cthulhu.
An apocalyptic adventure of a small cadre of folks doing their best to survive, and eventually stop Nyarlathotep.

#312: POST-APOC TROLLHUNTERS

Trollhunter meets Attack On Titan

With one great tectonic shift, they came, from the faults in the Norwegian mountains. They were giant and ghastly, hordes of them.

The smaller ones, fairies and goblins, came for and attacked and ravaged and the giants... the trolls, some as big as skyscrapers came and ate us all up.

We start in a world long after the trolls won. 

We open with a woman with a machete and a backpack and an old man with a rifle. On the horizon behind we see a cityscape, distorted by the sleeping titan-troll. Around their necks, they wear the heads of fairies and smother themselves in troll-stench to hide their scents.

They're on a certain troll's tail because the woman seeks revenge. This certain troll reached into their apartment window, years ago, and plucked their baby from its crib and munched on it like it were a cherry.

#311: Mobile Internet

The world is coming to an end. You're standing on the roof of your apartment building and a crowd of hostages are saying their prayers, willing you on to complete your task ... only you have can save the world.

On your phone, you have been given a secret weblink which will take you to a single button press. A button that will halt the launch of 2001 nuclear missiles set to land in the most populated spots around the world.

The mad genius behind it all has given this to you as a test.

Will an average human save the world or buckle under the pressure.

So you follow the link, you press the button, and you watch as your loading bar slowly, slowly fills.

"Three," says the mad man. "Two."

The loading bar still fills.

"One."

The page goes white.

"Time's up."

You hope to the last moment but all is lost when your phone goes to a connection time-out page.

In the distance, you hear the roaring of missiles already and you look to the corner of your phone.

Zero signal.

"Fucking EE!" you scream. "You really are the WORST mobile internet provider in the world.
