Feeling a bit of writer’s block? Try using a writing prompt generator to wake up that creative genius! Here are 5 free writing prompt generators you can try.
Seventh Sanctum can give you random first lines, or random ideas for names, settings, technology, magic, and more.

This site will give you a random first line, and then allow you to write for five minutes to continue that story.
Story Shack is a bit more robust because it can give you a word count, genre, character, a material, a sentence to use, and a bonus option. For example, I ran one and was given a word count of 200, the genre of drama, the character of a fat baker, the material of a wooden cross, the sentence “He can change,” and the bonus of “Your character is dying.” All of this together make it easier to put together something that you could either use in your book, or just use as a creative exercise.
Song lyrics can be a great writing prompt. Choose a random song on your playlist and use a line from the song to inspire you.
