What is a theme?

A theme, in literature, is the underlying idea or message of a work. It is often the overriding concept that links together all the elements of a story or poem. In order to create a strong theme, a writer must be able to identify and explore various aspects of human experience. A well-developed theme can enrich and enhance an otherwise average work of literature.

So many ideas, but can I use the themes for free?

All random themes created with this tool are 100% free to use without any need to provide credit (although we do appreciate the occasional shoutout). Be a little careful though, as there is always a small chance that an idea already belongs to someone else.

Is there a limit to how much I can generate with this random Theme Generator?
