Story Conception Method
This method of creating stories is both relatively fast and allows for very bizarre ideas to spring to mind. The method also makes it fairly simple to visualise and decide whether a story will work prior to putting in too much work.
Following on from this, I looked into more storytelling theories and rules that may be nice to use as guidelines. I came across Pixars guide to storytelling with 22 different suggestions, most of which are generalised and wouldn't intrude upon a story design.
I consider Narrative to be one of my weaker subjects currently, so finding this image gave me a lot of realisation in regards to what a story should be.
