EXERCISE Plot Practice: Week 9, Spoopy

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by The Mood is Write, May 6, 2016.

  1. Everyone loves plotting! Plotting is a fabulous way to find new ideas, breathe new life into old ones, and otherwise just have a really good time.

    I'm going to throw three basic plots (in various formats) a week, and users are welcome to post their takes and what they'd do with any given plot.

    1. Ghosts x Priest
    2. Creepy Twins
    3. "Don't go in there!"




    Below are my examples.

    1. Ghosts x Priest

      Father Joseph Reed looked around the house slowly. A kind family was letting him rent the place for cheap as long as he 'fixed it up', but he couldn't see anything wrong... until that night, when he woke to a ghostly trio standing at the foot of his bed.
    2. Creepy Twins

      Nel and Jel moved in sync, spoke in sync, and even seemed to think in sync. They were the masters of the cafe, and nobody questioned it until one night, a blizzard hit and trapped employee and staff alike, and they discovered the twins had a dark secret.
    3. "Don't go in there!"

      Abandoned for centuries, the old mine's wood beams were mostly rotted by now. Stories promised a treasure deep inside, but the stories were common and still nobody had claimed it. Why?
