Jot down all story ideas!

by Jessica Subject

As writers, we are usually inundated with story ideas. At least, I am. My mother always asks me if I’ve run out of story ideas. I wish! The problem is, I don’t have enough time to get all of my ideas fleshed out into stories.

But, I don’t ever pass on them. I have a story idea folder on my computer, and a physical one in my office. While I have different stories stored in each, I don’t plan on ever throwing them out. While an idea may sound foolish in the beginning, it may end up being one of your favorite stories after you’ve plotted it out and written it.

Taken by the Billionaire Alien Next Door started as a joke with my husband. I kept telling him how the billionaire and stepbrother romance tropes were very popular in the ebook emails I received every day. I said that I should write a billionaire alien stepbrother story. Well, the idea stuck. I couldn’t get rid of it. So, I started writing. While I scraped the romance with her stepbrother, I kept the billionaire alien by making him a neighbor. Proof that an idea that begins as a joke may turn into a worthwhile story if you develop it well.

So, the next time you come up with what seems like a goofy or unlikely idea, write it down anyway. You never know how it may develop in the future.

Excerpt (Mature Audiences Only)

“What exactly do you think I am, Miss Erika?”

“An alien.” There, I’d said it, and I expected him to laugh in my face and deny it.

Instead, he placed his hands behind his back and stepped nearer. “And what if I am?”

My breath caught. “I….” I should have kept my mouth shut. No, I should have waited for Barron to text a reply, never come over to the neighbor’s house. Now, I was stuck in a basement hangar with a flying saucer and a guy who could be from another planet.

Laken inched closer, and closer still. I moved along with him until my back hit a wall on the other side of the room. Trapped. Trying to duck away wouldn’t do me any good. He’d only race around and block my way again. My heart beat so hard, I expected it to thump right out of my chest. Would he let me go, or did he have other plans? If I screamed loud enough, would someone come to my rescue?

Leaning forward, he placed his palm on the wall behind me. “What if I told you I knew the instant you came into this room?” He ran his other hand along my cheekbone, tucking my hair behind an ear. “What if I told you I could feel your attraction, smell your sex?”

A shiver raced down my spine. Sure, I wanted to jump his bones before I’d seen his eyes. Now, I yearned for a way out, a clear path to escape from Mr. Sex-on-a-stick who may or may not be an extraterrestrial.

He dipped his head so close to mine, his warm breath brushed my neck. A flash of heat washed over me. Fuck, it had been so long since I’d been with any guy. Did it really matter where he came from?

“What if, Erika? If I am an alien? Would you still find me attractive? Would you still want to lick me from head to toe? Suck my cock? Would you want me to fuck you against this wall, in my spaceship, and on every single surface of this room?”
