Need a little creative boost? Here are some of my favorite writing prompt sites.
The One-Minute Writer
Their motto is "You have 1,440 minutes a day. Use one of them to write." I particularly like this site because many of the prompts can be used for joke writing and the page comes equipped with its own timer.
Thirteen Writing Prompts by Dan Wiencek. What this site lacks in volume it makes up for in wackiness. These are exactly the types of prompts I get excited about: "Write a scene showing a man and a woman arguing over the man's friendship with a former girlfriend. Do not mention the girlfriend, the man, the woman, or the argument." Anyone up for this challenge?
The Story Starter. I love this site for its utter randomness. Just click on the button and see what pops up: "The kind hiker did bypass surgery in a dark alley after the picnic to end the feud..." Somebody please finish that story so I know what happens!
Creative Writing Prompts
Okay, it isn't the prettiest site, but it does have 346 prompts up at all times -- one for almost every day of the year. No excuses.
