I just learned of a fun resource. Have you heard of Reedsy? It's a sight where authors can find editors, etc, but it also has a fun selection of writing resources to spur the imagination, including several generators.
Here's a link to the Plot Generator to get you started. You can find more under the Tools tab in the menu bar.
Clicking the "generate" button gave me this plot to write about:
A warlord, who is a crank.
A centaur, who is a forgiving soul.
It's a magical realism story about overthrowing the patriarchy. It kicks off on a moonlit beach with a mysterious sighting.
(Note that: the first sentence of this story is: "It was the third sunny night in a row.")
And there's a twist! You should write the protagonist as an anti-villain.
LOL! I mean, who wouldn't want to write that story? Too fun.

RAVENEYE: Gasp! Nighthawks! I used to have them all the time! Or rather, just-as-I-woke-up hawks. Awful, horrible anxiety/guilt/dread about all that crap. Evil nighthawks.

RAVENEYE: Just giving a heads-up: there has been some new material posted for crits and it seems to be falling through the cracks. I'm wondering if it's the way the forums are set up that contribute to our not seeing new posts (because we DO have to go looking fo

RAVENEYE: it unless we faithfully click the Recents Threads/Posts buttons), or if we're just getting lazy.
Anyway, if folks can spare a few minutes to look over the crit forums and grab something to comment on, I would be hugely grateful.

RAVENEYE: Contacting Alatariel to see about the Halloween contest. I'm guessing her new baby is an adorable distraction from forum things.
