Children’s book authors Glen and Karen Bledsoe have helpfully provided a set of writing prompt generators. One provides a phrase (“the [adjective] [noun] that went [verb/phrase]”). For example:
The shy scratching post that went fishing
The second provides three random items, to be combined in a story. For example:
A zucchini squash, a fishing rod, and a Tarot deck.
The final generator is a complex piece that provides a plot out of the following building blocks: protagonist, antagonist, setting, goal, an important event, and an important object.
Today, use one of the above examples, or go to the page and randomize your own. Enjoy, and pay a visit to the Bledsoes’ page frequently!
