Two updates this time!

First the Seventh Sanctum Tumblr now has a daily random character as well as the random story idea.  This way you get interesting character ideas you can share, discuss, and challenge each other to use.  I plan to add more in the future.

Next up, the Writing Prompt Generator had another update!  I added specific locations as well as metaphorical comparisons to classic stories and legends, plus some tweaks and additions and improvements here and there.

I think one more update and I can consider this “done enough” – good enough for people to use, but something where I’ll return to it to improve it in the future.  Frankly working on it because it not only takes work to do, you have to evaluate combinations, viability, maximizing randomness and diversity, and trying to keep it all “sounding” right.  In a way it’s one of the most challenging generators I’ve made.

So clearly it will be a work in progress for as long as I’m willing to work on it here and there or make some tweaks.

Now let’s try some results:

  • And now the the sky is crying – I like this one, it could be a metaphor for raining and suggests a mood.
  • His life is almost exactly like the tale of the Genji, only he was a virtual reality programmer. – Perhaps he’s reliving the tale in a game?
  • He died in the epoch of war, all because of that book. – A book of advice for warriors leads a person down a fatal path, assuming they know more than they do.
  • I was sure he will be sleeping. – What are you sneaking up on him for there.
  • Ambition is a lady, and that’s when the murders began. – One woman eggs on people with promises . . .
  • I am a mad lady, with my lanterns and my bottles. – And the bottles have candles in them, a woman obsessed with light – to keep the darkness inside at bay.
  • That archer will be the love of my life, but that’s a lie. – One archer saves a prince or princess, and they fake being in love with them in gratitude.
  • People call him Owen. – I got nothing.
  • We survived the poverty by hiding in her library. – A library designed to be an indestructible repository also lets people hide from a horrible bout of starvation, corrupting its intention – so how do you make up for it?
  • It was Monday, the day of injustice, and that’s when the murders began. – A court decision results in someone taking justice into their own hands.

Check it out!
