The third submission to my Series of Becoming an Awesome Writer. xD This is a list of a bunch of story events that could take place in your chapters. Really good for comics and realistic-fiction novels. Many I made up on the spot, while others are general ideas that may or may not have been played on before, but can still be easily turned into anything.
