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.

#276: The Hermit Fault
We tell the story of a person wandering into the woods. They simply left their home (we hint that it’s some sort of high-security place) and we just keep walking, ruminating on the horrible world of civilisation (ham it up, dear), until we find complete isolation.
Right at the end, we discover that we’re actually an Artificial Intelligence robot and in our wisdom we’ve decided to live as a hermit.
You’d rather be disassembled than taken back.
But then a man waits for you. it’s your creator. He stuns you, says we’ll take you home now where they can work on this bug of yours, say that they won’t let you go anywhere until you’re perfect.
Sort of a story of someone unable to escape their cage and the choice to live as a hermit.
