I want to write a story...:

It's called "Madman's Game." It's going to play off of the recent Alternate Reality Game fad, and it's going to have a touch of Creepypasta. My main character is going to be an Audience Surrogate girl that goes out to buy a game and then gets a free one on an unknown portable console from a guy on the street that says he can't use it. She receives challenges and puzzles on the console, even instructions to go to specific places and do certain things. At first, comparing it to an ARG, she has loads of fun, but one day she chooses to go out with a few friends instead of following the game's instructions.

And a bomb goes off in the city where she lives.

She soon finds out that the game is more than just a game and that she must follow the game administrator's destruction or risk the deaths of innocent people. She must grapple with her massive guilt for skipping out on the challenge the first time, and find out what is really going on and what's the purpose of the Madman's Game. I want to make the challenges interesting and unique, and challenge the reader to pick up my subtle hints on what's going on and what to do.

Will you give me your opinion?

We have a place on the fora called "Writer's Block". That's where these things go. I'd try posting this there.

Writer's Block is that-a-way.

Thanks for telling me about writers' block. I'm a relatively new troper and I'm even newer to the forums.

Eh, no worries. It happens.

@Bella Well...

First make sure you are alone. Then you must make some angel-hair noodles. Leave them in a strainer in your sink. Now go lie in your bed on your back. Stare at the ceiling. Wait until the edges of your vision go black as possible, but make sure not to actually fall asleep. When you have reached this state you pray to the noodled one. Now fall to sleep.

You we'll be awoken by the sensation of something slimy and cold wiggling on you. Do not, I repeat, do not open your eyes.

Make a wish and then pray again for it to go away. When it undulates off you your best is to fall asleep again. It will stay near you and watch you till you sleep again, at which point it will leave. Your wish may be granted if it feasible. Remember you must keep your eyes closed during the duration of your visit.

Congratulations. You have just had a touch of creepy pasta.
Please.

Wait, since the OP had made two versions of this thread, which one should we lock? I think this one should.

This one was the first one; the other was locked.

Write it. Summaries mean next to nothing, and ideas are a dime a dozen.

Seriously, go write it.
Look, you can't make me speak in a logical, coherent, intelligent bananna.
I want to write a story...

Well, it's not being written while you're posting a small synopsis of it waiting for others to give you vague opinions about an already vague book idea.

Just putting things in perspective.

Sit down and write it. The validation of others will come later. If you're interested in having it work-shopped, I'd suggest finding a local writing group nearby that specializes in that kind of thing.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
