Well one big announcement here is that I’m releasing the very crude Alpha of the Writing Prompt Generator.  How crude? Well I’d consider it at best 15% done, but the framework is there.

So this is where you come in – I want feedback and suggestions!  I could do this all myself (and indeed I’m going over famous opening lines of books for ideas), but as this is quite an effort frankly, and could do in so many directions, I thought it’d be fun to get feedback while I worked on it.

So go check it out and tell me what you think it needs!

And now, some examples:

  • A plague is just like marriage – he always said that.
  • A war was just what I expected.
  • And now the the cloud is speaking.
  • And now the the ocean is howling.
  • Disbelief requires love, and that’s where things get complicated.
  • Evan knew that wisdom requires education.
  • Famine, wisdom, and it seems the star is giggling.
  • He died for faith, that was the problem
  • He lived for evil.
  • Isaiah was an astronomer.
  • It was Wednesday, the day of birth, and that’s when the murders began.
  • Mass murder – it was definitely Saturday.
  • On Wednesday I became a linquistics expert.
  • She lived for ambition.
  • The communications officer was speaking.
  • There was a case of sudden poverty, he was a starship salesperson, and he was going to be the problem.
  • There was a famine, he was a bard, and he was going to be the problem.
  • There was a war, but nobody knew that.
  • This is a tale about justice and begin a zookeeper.
  • We called her Makayla, but we didn’t know why.

OK gang, let me know what else to add, your favorite opening quotes, and more!
