Help me pick a story.

At times when you least expect it, is when you suddenly get a whiff of a lovely idea for a story. I’ve had more than a few such instances and even though a few of those ideas have materialized into stories on this blog, I’ve lost even more due to putting it off for another time.

This is the way I found in order to let those ideas remain, so that I have one to pick from whenever I feel like writing. Below, you can find the ideas that I have in mind right now. As much as this is just a reminder/reference for me, I’m putting this up as a blog post so that you can tell me which story you would like me to write first. Leave a comment if you feel like it.

Currently started drafts:
——————————-
1. A long life, and a few last words.

Last words of an old Tree.

2. The Lost Ones.

The land of characters made up by authors, who never make it to books.

Lingering ideas:
———————

1. The Seed of Eternity.

His journey seeking the seed of eternity. Believed to contain the entire history of Earth, passed on from generation to generation. A certain plant/tree or a community of them are responsible for guarding and nourishing the seed of eternity within each generation before passing it onto the next. His quest leads him to places unknown, where he learns the language of the Green and listens to the stories they have to say.

2. The Village of Kadur.

A remote village located at the foot of a mountain range. The arrival of the supply truck that reaches Kadur once every year is considered to be the Holy day. Celebrations and Festivals happen around the day the truck arrives. Even the elders of the village remember the truck reaching Kadur on the same day every year since their childhood. The story speaks about the mysterious driver, and about that day when the truck does not show up…

3. His Journey to Salvation. (Half baked story idea)

Software Engineers, heroes of the digital world. The days of yore and the stories of brave knights and brave adventurers setting out on dangerous journeys to slay the dragon or fetch the Excalibur are over. With planes, automobiles and arms, they are heroes no more. The world today is at the fingertip of people who command the greatest knowledge over the digital world. Their nemeses fight hidden and are never known. Join our hero as he sets off on his quest to brave the odds and slay the nemesis once and for all, saving our World and restoring peace to the era.

  1. Oookay, looks like each appeal to a different crowd. That is an interesting observation considering I know the three of you personally. 🙂

    Will start my work on them soon.

    Thanks Usbu, Ershad and Kartik.

  2. I like the sound of both drafts. For the new ideas, “The Village of Kadur” gets my vote.

    “The Seed of Eternity” sound too opinionated for me.

    “His Journey to Salvation.” may make a good comic.

    “The Village of Kadur” seems interesting from the cultural, psychological, relationship, and philosophical sides of it.
