I plan on writing stories and short stories but creating one is hard. I mean I get you need characters of course, a beginning middle and an end.

All I need are ideas.

I have one. I got this idea from this Lost Boarding School. Like where my persona and some other characters attend a boarding School on a lost island.

I also have a Sailor Moon fanfic to continue. I might or might not continue that.

The problem is I wanna write but I just need ideas. And ideas for short stories. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Keep a small pad of paper with you during the day. Whenever you see or hear something interesting that could be part of a story, write it down. (Or in this magical day and age, save a note on your cellphone.) When you sit down to write, take out all your notes and see which ones could work well together.

This boarding school idea with multiple characters sounds a bit complex for a single story. Maybe you could break it up into multiple stories, with each story concentration on just one or two characters.


If your fanfic is almost done, you may as well just finish it. You're more likely to get feedback on fanwork than original stuff, so comments you get on your fanfic could help you improve your writing.

I posted the first chapter of my sailor moon fanfic just so I can show people my current writing style in case anyone wants to give me hints and tips for it.

As for my boarding school idea, I was planning on it being focused more on my persona and the other characters would kinda be background characters.

The piece of paper is a good idea, I would do it on a cellphone but I don't have one so a piece of paper and pencil will have to do.
