In looking for a writing prompt, I found 35 Random Idea Generators, which led me to Romance Plot Generator. The Romance Plot Generator will generate a plot for you. Very odd.
So I tried it – everything random:

Finally, when tactless navigator, Gregory Jolie, threatens to come between them, Rhiannon has to act fast. But will they ever find the splendid love that they deserve?

Hairy Rhiannon! LOL. So, let’s analyze, using a romance plot outline (from Stephanie Bond)

  • Maureen Chan is a hairy, slender and optimistic actor from the seaside. Her life is going nowhere until she meets Rhiannon Rabbit, a hairy, muscular woman with a passion for books.
  • Rhiannon Rabbit somehow changes Maureen’s normal world. Note that we know nothing about what motivates Maureen or why her life is going nowhere and we know nothing about Rhiannon Rabbit. I’d call this the inciting incident and the “hero/heroine (heroine/heroine) meet and clash.”

  • Maureen takes an instant disliking to Rhiannon and the cowardly and tactless ways she learnt during her years in England.
  • The characters are forced to be together for some reason. Well, no. This is still a part of the clashing from above. Also, a little backstory.

  • However, when a goblin tries to shoot Maureen, Rhiannon springs to the rescue. Maureen begins to notices that Rhiannon is actually rather charming at heart.
  • This is a turning point. The characters don’t want to be attracted to each other, but they can’t help themselves. Sort of. Where did the goblin come from?

  • But, the pressures of Rhiannon’s job as a doctor leave her blind to Maureen’s affections and Maureen takes up football to try an distract herself.
  • Just when they characters start to become friendly, something happens to remind them of the obstacles that prevent a happy relationship/happily ever after scenario. I guess using work and football work as obstacles.
    [Missing steps: the characters consider including the other person in their lives. The characters consummate their relationship.]

  • Finally, when tactless navigator, Gregory Jolie, threatens to come between them, Rhiannon has to act fast. But will they ever find the splendid love that they deserve?

Just when everything is looking up, something happens to change the relationship dynamic – aka “black moment.” Who is the tactless navigator and where did he come from?
[Missing step: the characters fine a way to overcome the internal and external conflicts that keep them apart and they achieve the happily ever after.]

In summary, this is not an amazing plot. However, randomly generated things seldom are. They are good for idea generation though. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try to make a plot outline that works.
