Use a good King Arthur framework and write

Find at Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes & Nobel.
So you have some story or novel planning to do. You're feeling a bit pressed for time or pressed with concern for writer's block. Try a classic story line and build your story around it.

A. A table has been dropped by your character's house. It was just left on the porch. Round, inlaid with beautiful fine strips of wood: black oak, cherry, beech and black bean. Bits of blue glass are imbedded in the center of the tabletop and thickly lacquered into place. The legs are turned and carved deeply with vines and wavy lines, and strips of onyx rise up from the ball feet.

B. Take the Arthurian Legend and tie it to the mystery of that small round table landing on his porch.

Put them together and write C.
