Push a button, get a random idea:

Seeds are simple seeds for stories, or ways to come up with writing prompts. Restrictions are ideas to constrain your creative writing process and challenge yourself. Revision contains ideas for revising existing pieces of writing. Songs are ways to generate improvised lyrical topics, which are mostly my pretty-strange tactics and may or may not work as jumping-off points for you.


Modifying the ideas

You can download this file and edit the ideas object to add or remove these categories, or any new idea seeds you want for yourself. Just save this page as HTML, edit it in a text editor (like Notepad) — I promise it's not that scary — and then drag it onto a browser window.

Or, if you like, you can send along your ideas to add and I'll put them in. Whee!
