Cool Bits Story Generator

Cool Bits Story Generator
11/19/2007 Added more Cool Bits. 10/31/2007 Added a new element: motivation. Also added new sentence structures to use it. 6/23/2007 Just created a Random Art Prompt Generator. 5/7/2007 Updated the generator with more Cool Bits that were sent to me. 5/2/2007 A friend is soliciting cracktastic bits for a Cracktastic Bits Story Generator. Origins In June 2006 Rachel Manija Brown made a Livejournal post entitled "Writing by Cool Bit". A number of people replied with lists of their favorite cool bits and narrative kinks. And if you have any Cool Bits that don't seem to be included - if there's anything that's guaranteed to make you want to read, or write, a book, comic, or manga, let me know, and I'll add it when I get around to updating (no guarantees on a schedule, though!).
