Prompt Resources for @StoryADayMay

deskworkFirst, there’s this very same blog as ever was. Yes, this very one that you’re reading now. I’ve put a prompt at the end of almost every single daily post, so feel free to bring up a post at random and snag the prompt from the end.

If you have time and money to make a purchase, try Bonnie Neubauer’s Story Spinner. I just LOVE it, and I’ve gotten some really good story starts from it. She also sells books of story prompts.

Here are some more:

Ten Minute Tuesday – Even if it isn’t Tuesday, you can search for the Ten Minute Tuesday prompts.

That Darn Kat story generator – Another one I love. And it’s fun to click the clicky thing.

Prompt Generator – Just what it says.

Writing Prompts – Click on Random for a new one – And a cute li’l dancing pencil, too!

Creative Writing Prompts – hover over a number to see one – When I first saw this page, I thought I had stumbled onto a cryptography site. But no.

And here are a couple more aids, from #4 Daughter (who is joining me tomorrow with a guest post for Caturday) and me. Choose two or more from list 1 and one from list 2.

  1. List of occupations.
  2. List of meeting places.

Use the comments section here to suggest other occupations and places to meet.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character puts together a list of resources for another character.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
