    Some people wonder why a quick writing prompt generator is needed when there are plenty of these types of lists on the Internet. This online tool adds a few advantages that the lists don't have that can make it easier to use for some. Below you can find some of the more common ways the writing prompt tool is used.

    Writing Challenge

    One of the drawbacks of using the fiction writing prompt lists on the Internet is that when you bring it up, you get the entire list. This means that even though you're looking for a random writing prompt, you're actually getting a list that you can pick and choose from. This inevitably leads to you choosing a prompt that you feel more comfortable with than an actual random thing to write about. That's not the case with this tool. If you choose to have only one result appear, you're getting a completely random writing result which may not be all that easy. This means you're much more likely to get challenged in your writing than when you look at list of random things to write about.

    Writing Inspiration

    If you're looking for inspiration for your writing, this tool can be a helpful way to find it. With hundreds of interesting things to write about in the database, you are bound to come across writing prompts that'll be fun things to write about. The unexpected results should help to inspire your writing, especially if you've been experiencing writer's block. While not all of the results will create instant inspiration, there should be enough that do to get your writing juices flowing.

    The First Line

    The first sentence is often the most difficult one for a lot of writers when they sit down to write. If this is an issue, the writing prompts from this generator can be a wonderful way to begin your day. No matter what you need to write about during the day, the prompt will likely be nothing like your assignment. This will help take off all the pressure and you can simply write a sentence or a paragraph on the resulting prompt. Once you have written a few sentences on any topic, it should be much easier to begin writing on the project you have for that day.
