And as I was outlining, I was giving fun titles to these “scenes” or “ideas”
And then thought of a fun game that could possibly help develop plots, or just be super fun.
how it works:
you list plot scenes, but give vague or misleading titles for them only
others will try to guess the scenes’ actions, like in Erynne’s CUCG but with stories. they will guess based off of the titles, and they could be descriptive in their guesses or just simple and short.
The person whose scenes you were guessing will reply with either a yes or no, or more elaborate answers if they wish.
Does that make sense?
I’ll give an example of plot scenes for someone to guess.

Right now I call the story Dakota’s Story, because it has no title. You will recognize the characters from The completely useless character game, such as Dakota, Daelon, Jireh, Terra and Trace.
(I think @gbfruitbat would love guessing this one… but anyone is welcome too!)
It is a fantasy story.
Here’s the scene “titles.”
This goes back and forth between two povs.
- The Auction
- An Introduction and Acceptance
- A Run-In
- A Brother and a Sister
- A Talk of Children
- Runs Away, Brought Back
- Ideas to Help
- Thoughts on Other Flowers
- Four Words.
- A Call
- Plans to Protect
- Masked Guardian
- Battle of Pikes
- Going, Going, Gone.
- Matrimonial Merriment
- Time’s Gone, All Wrong
- The Visit I
- The Visit II
- The Argument
- Miserable and Her Secret
- Gloom and His Defeat
- The Blow
- Going Home?
- Reunion F.
- Long Time, Realizations/Baby
- Reunion D.J.
- Rule. Raising.
Ta-Da! i think I did it all…

*frantically waves hand in the air* I think I know the first one!
Is it the auction where Dakota gets bought or whatever?
This is perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take: to be seen as we truly are.December 11, 2021 at 6:58 pm #145375
@gbfruitbat lol yea, and you could go down the list if you want.

Ohhh I see what you mean. I like this! However, I barely know what genre my book is soo I can’t do every chapter like that. What if we badly explained a chapter and everyone guesses what it’s actually about?
