Whether you’re just taking a break ftom serious writing, are bored or are experiencing a complete block, the creating doesn’t have to stop. Explore newer ways to create and have fun with the sites below:
Magnetic Poetry Maker
I love this because it’s not messy and user friendly. I went through a few sites and so far I enjoy this one the most.
2. Random First line generator
This is actually unique when you think about how difficult a first line can be. Good use with this site, even if you don’t end up using it word for word – it may inspire you.
3. Book Title generator (free and all genres)
The bane of many writers existence is coming up with a good title. This site may help lesson the pain. 🙂
4. Electronic Poetry
Similar to magnetic, this feature involves words frequently used by authors. All you need to do is choose an author! Super user friendly.
5. DIY Writing Prompt (random generator below)
I had a recent prompt (where of course I can’t remember the site) asked me to grab the nearest book and go to a certain page and pick 10 words, 7 of which I would use in a poem. The above website is a random number generator so grab a stack of books (don’t look at the title) and start generating numbers for pages, or lines or words on a certain page or 5 words from each page the generator gives you. Then put a time limit on each page. For example:
Random book on desk: Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
# of pages: 325
First number from generator: 124
- Words: extended, measurable, enemy, decoding, wind
- Blood, unstained, corridor, pewter, black
- Scratched, mongoloids, cracks, blind, shook
Will this be a weird poem? Probably but that’s the beauty in it.
