Today I recommend that you visit the Not My Desk New Food Dire Warning And/Or Healthful Revelation Generator. Generate a dire warning or two and start writing:
- A press release warning the public about this new hazard. Be as deadpan or over-the-top as you please. In the case of a revelation, a press release extolling its benefits.
- A story about someone afflicted with or paranoid about contracting the new problem. In the case of a revelation, a story about someone who prays his life will be changed by it.
- A story about the new plague or benefit’s effects on society.
- A free-write based on the concepts linked by the warning or revelation.
- A poem based on the unusual linkage of images and thoughts.
For today’s exercise, try the following pre-generated health revelation:

Random generators of nearly any kind can be used for writing—they don’t have to specifically be plot generators, character generators, or the like.
