The Title Story Cupboard
Do you ever run across a title that sparks a story idea? Today I ran across a literary magazine called "Rain, Party, & Disaster Society" and ideas began to percolate. An actual Society that meets once a month to plan disaster themed parties? Perhaps the disaster is a crime at a party? Perhaps a wedding in the middle of a tornado? Perhaps an arson fire during a party and the rain help extinguish the flames? Four little words and the way they're grouped created those ideas. Okay, not all of them are great, but you can find ideas for a story everywhere from a title to a group of words. You just have to open your imagination.
