This week I want to share a cool writing tool that I have had bookmarked for a while now. This tool is brought to us by the same guy who made The Story Starter tool. It’s easy to use and pretty helpful.
(I’ve also added links to my Resources page.)
In April 2012, I shared the Story Starters website with you guys as a great online resource to give you a kick in the pants when you’re trying to think of something to write. The Scribble website challenges you to create as many words as you can from the random set of letters that get generated when you click the button. However, you could use these randomly generated letters for almost anything! Each letter could be the start of a line in a poem. Each letter could be the start of a paragraph, chapter, sentence, or whatever else you can think of. Depending on what I’m working on, I use this tool for various purposes.
Sometimes, I have been staring at my project for so long, that I just need to put it aside and do something else for a bit. This is a great quick mind-clearing exercise to just write whatever comes to your mind instead of hammering away at your mind-numbing project for just a moment or two. 🙂
From the Scribble website:
Scribble is a word game for kids, adults, families, and classrooms. The goal is to create as many words as you can using the ten letters that are randomly generated in the box. Just scribble down the words on a piece of paper as fast as you can think of them. You can even make it into a contest with your family, classmates or friends. Make up your own rules!
BEWARE: There are 141,167,095,653,376 possible combinations of letters!
(Yes, that’s more than 141 TRILLION combinations.)
See what you can cook up with this generator. Don’t forget to share your work with me, I’d love to see it. If I like yours, I’ll post it on my blog for all to see. 🙂
