How to find a plot for your story

Hey Guys. 

So I had this question asked in the comments. So I thought I would try and answer it the best I could. First off. I am not a professional writer. I do what I can when I can. Half of the time I don't know what I am doing. I try to be a bright cookie. So here is how to find a plot for the story you want to write. 

I struggle with finding plots, or if you're a writer, you will know it as a plot bunny. Everyone gets them in different ways. I tend to find my stories concept first. Then will stumble upon a plot later on. 
So first off to start a story. 
You are going to need Characters. And a world to put them in. You will find that you will find more characters while you start to write. They will turn up, and you will just be like "Oh hey there." And they will be like. "Yeah hey. So I'm just going to come in and be a big part of the story now. Thanks."  It will happen. All I can say is go with it. 

So once you have a character or two. Start to think of the world they grew up in. Who are they? What do they do? All these will come when you are writing. But it's good to have all this at the back of your mind. 

Now for the answer to the finding a plot business. And that is. Plots can be found everywhere. You have to inspire yourself. I find my plots by having much alone time. Having a shower, listening to music, scrolling though endless pinterest pictures. Reading writing prompts.  (Just google writing prompts and it will come up with heaps.) 

I don't know how to properly answer that question. I think that it will in the end just take time to find a plot. Sometimes you just need to start writing and the plot will come to you. If this helped. Please comment. Or give me some of your tips on how you find your plots. Sorry it wasn't an amazing post. I'm just a dreamer. That is how I do my stuff. 


A quote from WIP.


  1. I don't write much story and stuff but I do have to make plot for comics I make and more often then not I end up going entirely the other way than I imagined earlier.What I usually do is just start putting down my ideas as they come when start making my comic and with time I get more ideas to incorporate in it.
    Best line : "Yeah hey. So I'm just going to come in and be a big part of the story now. Thanks." xD

    1. Hey Neal.
      That is so cool that you make stories for comics! Thank you for sharing what you do. I often will write down the ideas as they come to me. Though sometimes I am a bit to lazy... XD
