The writing prompt generator provides you with ten inspiring prompts you can use to continue your current story, start a new one, or just engage in a fun writing exercise.

As writers, we often have lots of big ideas. Plottr’s AI Plot Generator can help you take those big ideas and break them down into the elements of a story, presented in an outline format.

This can help you see some options for the way your story could go, and offers options you might not have considered on their own.

An AI plot generator can also help you if you are stuck, or if you just want to have some fun exploring how your plot might be different if you changed the genre or wrote it with a different tone, villain, or by switching up the main character.

Not only does this tool generate new ideas and options for writers, but it can be really fun at the same time.

An AI writing prompt generator harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to carefully tailor a plot outline for your story based on the inputs you provide.

In contrast, a random writing prompt generator produces writing prompts based on random inputs, resulting in a set of completely random ideas.

You can use the tool for free up to 3 times per day. If you'd like to use it more often, please send us a message.
