Some writers are very good at writing stories, but lousy at coming up with ideas to write about. You can make good money in Hollywood being a script doctor who takes the screenplay originated by someone with less actual writing talent but more talent at pitching ideas. The same kind of goes along with novels; if someone gives you an idea you can run with it and produce something that will top the bestseller lists, but trying to come up with a good plot is just beyond your abilities. For those types of writers, I offer some free ideas for novels or screenplays.
