I'm making a concerted effort to Write The Damn Book. I've found a few writing prompts that have been helpful to jumpstart me on days I'm spinning my wheels on a blank page, but would like to collect more.

This is what I do:
  • Go to the Ninja Words website.
  • Click the "Random" button three times, or more, until I get three random words that I am happy with as a writing prompt.
  • Write. (Of course, any site that generates random words would work, but I've found Ninja Words the best for me.)
I've also used Writer Igniter.
