STORY IDEA #189: Survival Journal



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.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#189: Survival journals

So I had this idea for a 365 journal. One that you just fill in as normal, but it's imagines you're living in a post-apocalypse world and gives you various post-apoc style scenarios each week. So I'm imagining a subtle story there where each week you get a scenario/game to write out your response to, and I was thinking about how every now and again the book would refer to some other man who keeps leaving you notes.

And then throughout the weeks you uncover who the man is and how he relates to you, the reader.
Still working through this one but there's something interesting there.
