In an attempt to feel creative, I found this page – a random story generator. It gives you a bunch of things to put into a story. When I hit the button to create my random story, this is what I got:
My main character/protagonist is a male. My main character is a mail carrier. An archetype present in my story is Judas. A key object or symbol in my story is a napkin. My story will be set in ancient Egypt. My story is about masochism.
A mail carrier in ancient Egypt is betrayed by a napkin given to him by Judas… and likes it. Or something. I have no idea what Judas is an archetype of. Maybe I should’ve paid more attention during Jesus Christ Superstar.
