Developing Ideas

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

how does one come up with a story idea? how do you develop that into a full story? this seems to be my problem. or at least, one of them. I have some ideas, good one. (well, they seem good to me). but thats all I really have: ideas.

I had a dream a long time ago and only one part really stuck: I, or maybe it was me as a woman, was at some place, like a reststop, and it was at night and empty. a phone rang. I answered it and an ominous voice on the other end just says, "Im coming."

pretty lynchian if you ask me.

so, how could I develop that one small scene into a full story? where does it begin? who is this person answering? who is on the other end? or what is on the other end? what happens next? how does it end?
