People ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” Get ’em right here!
- The generator gives you the Four Elements for a prompt:
- A character,
- in a location,
- with an object,
- facing a situation.
Combine all four into a perfect work of microfiction. The only rule is that all four elements must be used in some way. Simple, right? These are supposed to be warm-up exercises, so think in terms of flash fiction. You don’t need to create a fully developed beginning, middle, and end.
They can be funny, creepy, sad, or just plain weird. We tend toward humor, but there’s no rule saying you have to. There’s also no rule saying you have to keep them brief. If you’re truly inspired, you could turn these prompts into short stories or even novels.
So, have fun and share your results in a comment!
