where flashes of inspiration are only a click away
Welcome to my short story ideas web site.
If you want to write short stories but are stuck for ideas then you've come to the right place.
Whether you’re entering a writing competition, completing a writing assignment, want to get your short story published or you just enjoy writing stories, the various idea generators here will provide you with as much, or as little, help as you need.
There are plenty of ideas for short stories -
There's also a random generator which will give you three words to try to spark your imagination into life.
If you prefer visual prompts try the image generator.
In the library you'll find books to help generate story ideas, get rid of writer's block and help with the creative writing process.
Have fun and get writing those short stories!
I update the generators with new words regularly so if nothing inspires you on your first visit, come back soon and give it another go.
Using examples from her own published short fiction, Della Galton takes you from 'story idea' to 'final edit', and demonstrates how to construct and polish the perfect short story, ready for publication.
