Hours Of Fun With Only One #FridayRecommends

Friday RecommendsMartin Cavannagh of Reedsy sent me a link to a new feature on the site, and I’ll tell you what: It’s addictive! Talk about writing prompts!

The new feature is Book Title Generator. Click on a genre (or on Any), and the site generates a random title. So maybe the title it generates is wildly inappropriate for the book you need a title for. (Yes, I know I ended the sentence with a preposition, but there’s no earthly reason not TO.

HOWEVER, you get a title like this one:


(Actual generated title!)

You could totally write a story with that as a prompt!

Make it so, Number One!

A PROMPT FROM ME (AND REEDSY) TO YOU: Visit the Book Title Generator, generate a title, and sketch out a three-sentence storyline based on it. Write the story, if you want to.




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.

    Steffie reviewed the file carefully.
    115 local people, with seemingly nothing in common, all dead in weird ways.
    No clues.
    It made no sense.
    So, she called Pete in. As usual, he was grumbling about taxes…. And was useless.
    The light went on in Steffie’s Blonde head.
    She checked with the tax department. |
    All these people were behind.
    Obviously a disgruntled IRS agent.
    She turned the file back over to the FBI, and went out to supper with Marian.

    There ya go kid. All you need to do is fill in those pesky details. The stuff I am lousy at.

    Why, it writes itself! (Technically this is Spam, but we will conveniently ignore that!)
