Plots For Free
"Plots For Free" is one way to give back to those desperate authors who have nothing else left to say, and who have trouble bathing.
I'm here to help them, and you can too. The following plot summary is from a novel I read when I was 17 years old. It's called "Come On In And Have A Seat!" I hope you like it.
An unnamed narrator imagines that he is a chair, but people who sit on him practice poor hygiene. Other people who sit on him are incapable of keeping still, creating scuff marks on the chair’s surface. The man [the chair] – agitated beyond all reason - somehow manages to place a tac near the left rear of himself. In the first scene (close to Chapter Three, but actually in Chapter One), a very proper fat lady with a perpetual scowl on her face is encouraged to sit down. The remaining 327 pages are very predictable.
Some of the chair’s most memorable moments occur when a sitting President settles onto the chair for a Mexican dinner. Another incident of misbehavior occurs when a dog jumps onto the chair and mistakes it for a carpet.
The novel, written by Hiram Smudge, was his only published novel. Shortly after its publication, he tied himself to a Morris chair and plummeted into Niagara Falls. Strangely, the chair was recovered intact, although somewhat drenched in water, but Smudge’s body was never found.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
