I've heard a lot about using some kind of random plot generators as ideas for stories. Do you know anything about these, and if so what is a good one?


There are a number of random generators out there, and I have examined a bunch of them. The best I've found is actually a site which includes dozens of generators for different types of ideas and needs. It includes ideas for different genres, various aspects of the story such as characters and settings, and idea generators for stories or even longer works.
