Fun for Friday: Ridiculous Generators for Story Ideas

It seems like there’s a new ridiculous generator popping up on Facebook every other week these days. They might tell you how to make a B-movie title based on your initials or birthdate or something similar. Sometimes they just give you a new name. Other times, they can suggest to you an entire plot.

The latest one I’ve seen is the Tony-Winning Musical Generator from Electric Literature (which has produced a few of these great memes). You’ll get a weird genre, plot, and setting all in one! Some of these really could be the next big hit, whether they’re musicals or novels!
