STORY IDEA #269: Friend

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.

#269: Snowflake, my main character in my surreal thriller London book, had a friend. A close friend but one who always made him uneasy. He lost touch with the man after his mental breakdown. A time where he screamed about Brutus and the history of the city as if it were a force that was going to kill him.


So along time ago, Snowflake lost touch with him. Simply by not trying. And now, here he is, sleep paralysis in the middle of the night and his friend is standing there, talking to him about being betrayed and left for the history to get him.
