Nothing productive here, just a fun little thing I found. Here's a website that'll come up with plot ideas for you, and a lot of them are... interesting. Try it out, and share any winners you get!
"The story is about a demonologist who has a crush on a fisherman. It starts in a school in a large city. The crux of the story involves a deception. The issues of faster-than-light-travel and its effects on business is a major element of the story."
"The story is about a promiscuous daycare employee who is haunted by a ghost. It starts on a fog-shrouded planet in a solar-system-spanning technocracy. An impending magical conflux plays an important role."
"This is a mystery tale. The story is about a complacent actor who tends to annoy demonic beings. It starts in a dying domain. The critical element of the story is a resignation. The difficulty of cross-species communications is a major issue of the story."
