How to make a story idea..without relying on talent!


A lot of light bulbs fly to the sky

Talented People produce exciting stories one after another.

Is it impossible for people who are not talented?

I will explain ways to come up with a great story without relying on talent.

Do not just think in front of the desk

There is a limit to the idea in your head.In other words, there is a limit to the idea that can be figured out without to refer to anything.

It is difficult for most people to draw pictures without looking at anything. In the same way, there are limits to figuring out ideas without to refer to anything.

Let's refer something

If you refer to something, you can give a good story idea.

So, what should we refer to?

What can be referenced

For example, you can refer to your favorite story. You can also refer to historical events or familiar real stories.

Here, I will explain about how to refer to existing stories.

Of course, it is not about plagiarism. It is also different from "parody" and "homage". As an illustration, let's create a new story based on the story of Japanese popular manga "H2".

Make a new story based on the existing story

Example: "H2"

First of all, let's think about why "H2" is interesting.

The story has a "framework of fun", and its flesh is attached around it. Flesh is a motif, a character, etc. You should strip the flesh out and expose the skeleton.

The rough story of "H2" is as follows.

At a high school where only "baseball lovers" exists, the hero strives hard to make a "school baseball team"

Character who are good at baseball will join the team one after another

Aim for winning the school baseball national tournament "Koshien"

Let's peel off 'fleshed'. Try peeling off "baseball" for example.

At a high school where only "___ lovers" exists, the hero strives hard to make a "___ club"

Character who are good at ___ will join the team one after another

Aim for winning the ___ national tournament

Let's fill a new motif to ___ part to make a new flesh. Then, it will be your original story. As an example, let's flesh out "school idol", then ...

At a high school where only "school idol lovers" exists, the hero strives hard to make a "school idol club"

Character who are good at school idol will join the team one after another

Aim for winning the school idol national tournament "LOVE LIVE!"

How! Based on "H2", it became a story idea like anime "Love Live!"

Not plagiarism

Perhaps, "Love Live!" May be really referring to "H2". Even so, "Love Live!" is not a plagiarism of "H2".

Even if you refer to the "skeleton" of the story, it does not become plagiarism if "fleshy" is different."H2" may also refer to something. I think that there is no story that does not refer to anything.

It is good to refer to the existing story

In this way, you can make as many interesting stories as the number of existing stories.

I think that this is not a cheap way, but rather a worthwhile way. I think that the skeleton of interest is not monopolized by the person who first thought of it.

Cook the skeleton of interest in a different way ... This is not a cheap way. Rather, I think that it is important when making a story.

This is the way everyone is doing

This method is not new, it is the way everyone is doing since long ago.

George Lucas and Anno Hideaki are also doing it.
