Why should you use a Writing Prompt Generator?
Using a Writing Prompt Generator can be a great way to get creative juices flowing and help you come up with ideas you wouldn't have otherwise thought of. It can be especially helpful when I'm stuck in a creative slump and don't know what to write about, because it can spur new ideas and get me out of the rut. It can also be a fun way to explore random topics and surprise myself with ideas I didn't know I had. In addition, it can add structure to my writing process, because the prompts will provide me with limitations that can motivate me to come up with creative solutions.

All random writing prompts 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.
