Write 10 potential story or book titles you would like to write, pick your favorite one and write a synopsis of the story/book.
This was a monthly assignment that my EPIC writing teacher, Mr. Scott made us do, and a kazillion years later, I still do it. 😛
Please do not steal my writing, but feel free to do this Pick 10 Exercise yourself, leave it in the comment section blow, or if you post it on your own website, Goodreads, or wattpad, leave a link in the comment section so I can read it! Let’s get creative together!
*Note: I plan on using a lot of these titles later, some of them are pretty decent, and some of them are MEH! Some of the titles may change slightly if I do use them. *

Synopsis: (Typically my synopsis of a potential story is a lot more detailed than this is. For sake of this

She falls in love with the man who gave her the book and finds herself in a downward spiral of breaking
the contract she has with Lucifer.
Consequences: people she cares about die or gets murdered, she gets fired, and her children get taken
away by DHS.
Her children get adopted out and she ends up in a mental ward after going through what people call insane, but
the reality is, that Satan is tormenting her. She lives 400 years locked up in a straitjacket in solitary
