Story Starter: 10

The task: to come up with three loglines (very short story descriptions) based on the image. The point: to stay creative and hone my ability as a screenwriter to write loglines.

All images can be found on my Story Starter Pinterest board (with the link to the artist’s page). And if you’d like to produce any of the loglines you see in my Story Starter Series, feel free to contact me!

  1. An ambitious young woman’s life comes to a halt when her husband is killed in action and she’s left to bring together his estranged family for the funeral.
  2. A cancer patient, once in remission, is stunned to find the cancer has come back and retreats into a fantasy to fight against the second attempt on her life before depression, anxiety, and the cancer itself can claim her.
  3. An exiled fairy of light tries to earn her way back to her kingdom by bringing a snotty college kid through the fae wyldes as a sacrifice for her Queen only to befriend the kid along the way.


Rate each logline!

Award stars based on your interest in the loglines! Do they have characters, themes, and imagery that intrigue you? Would you watch that movie? Give it 5 stars for something you're super excited about all the way to 1 star for something you stopped reading because you were so disinterested in it.

Pick your favorite!

If you could only pick one logline, one movie to go see, which one would it be?
