STORY IDEA #199: Sherwood


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.

Check out the previous ideas here.

#199: Sherwood.

I don't know why we never had a small town Twin Peaks / Wayward Pines style show set in Sherwood Pines.

So ...

A child is missing. Obvs.

Lost after playing with friends in the woods.

A year later and the kid returns, but he's different. He's ten years older and he said he killed someone in the woods but he can't remember who.
Basically, it's a murder mystery involving some time travelling portal hidden in the woods.
