Tell me something,Who helped you with all those assignments about the things which you barely understood? Who answered all your questions, silly or complex? Yeah, I’m talking about the internet.

I get my ideas from 3 main sources on the internet-

  1. Reddit
  2. Plot Generators
  3. Pinterest

Reddit To Find Creative Story Ideas


Reddit is one place where you can find anything you want, anything at all! Bored ? Get some entertainment, feeling low? Ask for advice, Out Of ideas to write? Get some Creative writing prompts. There’s a subreddit that offers a lot of writing prompts and the best part is that you won’t be violating any copyrights and just in case you finish your novel and get it published, nobody is going to ask you for credits for the idea.Here is the link to r/WritingPrompts

Creative Plot Generators / Writing Prompt Generators


I’ve never used one because Reddit has been more than enough for me, so I don’t know which writing plot generator is the best. So,Google it up and pick one to get yourself a good plot. I never really understood how they work, but they’re really easy to use.They ask you to input some pretty basic stuff like the place in which you want the story to be set, the name of the protagonist , the theme of the story (Mystery, Crime, Historical,etc.) and they come up with brilliant writing plots which you can use for your story, Some of them even generate a book cover with the title and your pen name on it. Let me Google ‘Plot Generators” For You

Pinterest – Creative Story Ideas / Prompts For Writing


Pinterest has some of the best plots I’ve ever come across. Some of the prompts are so well framed that you feel like the two line prompt itself tells a story of its own. But still, I find Reddit to be more amazing, it offers much creative prompts than pinterest. Here is the link to Pinterest Writing Prompts


Don’t worry about the copyrights as one cannot copyright an idea. But make sure that you don’t steal others stories that are written in the comments, they can sue you for that. So, just use the prompts and start writing now! It would be really kind of you if you can let me know what you think about this article.
