Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise February 14, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Random Generation.

Random Generation exercises allow computers to help you find your prompt, you know, instead of visiting this website via messenger pigeon and cranking out the pages with your mechanical typewriter. Write a piece or fragment that utilizes the following random element.

Today's random generation is...

Random sci fi title! I'm a fan of Cornelius Zappencacker's Pulp Sci-Fi Title-O-Tron. You don't have to write a science fiction story or poem (not that anything is stopping you), just look through the various generated titles and write down any that sound interesting, make sure you get at least five before you start your piece, so you can later look back when struggling to find something to write. Don't be scared by the science fiction aspect of the title generator, because there are tons of general titles generated. My first spin pulled up "Gods of the Bridge" "The Expanding Mansion" and "The Benevolent Ice Gardener" which could all easily be any sort of story or poem.
