7 Of The Best Writing Prompts Apps You Need To Try
Stumped about what to write today?
You’re in good company.
There’s no shame in admitting that, either.
Even the best writers have days when they could use a little help.
Whether you’re journaling or brainstormi ng ideas for a new story, book, or blog post, a writing prompts app could change everything.
And after looking through the list below, you’ll have a better idea of which prompt app will help you the most.
Read on to find a new favorite.
1. Rory’s Story Cubes by Asmodee Digital: Android and iOS
2. prompted journal—guided self-care journaling by darling apps (plum studio, inc.): android or ios, 3. the brainstormer by tapnik / excite engineering, llc: android and ios.
- 4. Lists for Writers by Thinkamingo: Android and iOS
5. Writing Prompts from Writing.com: Android and iOS
6. daily prompt writing app by daily prompt, ltd.: ios only, 7. writing prompts—an online community by bew technologies: android only, 7 writing prompts apps you should try.
We’ve picked seven of our favorite daily writing prompts apps for you to explore. Make a note of the features that appeal to you most.
Based on the award-winning game using nine physical dice covered in symbols, this app allows you to generate story ideas wherever you are. If you’ve got your mobile phone, you now have a way to spark new connections in your mind with a virtual roll of the dice.
One shake of your device gets the dice rolling. Once they settle, each die shows a simple drawing — like a lock, a compass, a flower, a word bubble, etc. Players can use the images in any order to create a new story idea .
The original game’s website offers helpful tips for using the dice.
- Image prompts using six-sided virtual dice
- Allows you to take pictures of the dice and lock dice in play
- No winners or losers—just storytellers
Even if you love your journaling habit, some days you could probably use a little help thinking about what to write. And if you’ve been putting self-care on the back burner, this journaling app could change that.
Described as a “ daily journal for self-compassion,” Prompted Journal makes it easier to prioritize your daily check-in with yourself. The longer and more regularly you use the app, the more clearly you can see your growth from the day you started.
You can even create a PDF of your journal entries, organized by prompt or by date.
- 100+ writing prompts, which cycle every 3-4 months
- Write letters to your past and future self.
- Scroll through entries for each prompt to see your progress
- Create PDFs of journal entries to print.
This writing prompt generator uses a three-part wheel (with a vintage look) that you spin to get three terms or phrases. The outer wheel gives you your story’s subject. The middle wheel gives you the style or setting for the story. The inner wheel gives you the conflict.
Not every combination will get your imagination whirring, but each word has been carefully selected to maximize your chance of quickly finding a prompt that lights you up and gets the ideas flowing.
Approach each spin’s results with a “What if?” question and see where it leads you.
- Different wheels available for purchase: Character, World, Creature, etc.
- Spin the wheels as many times as necessary to get a result that sparks interest.
- Create new wheels or edit existing ones, and share your results.
Price: $0.99 (Android) or $1.99 (iOS)
4. Lists for Writers by Thinkamingo: And r oid and i OS
This app delivers a huge variety of lists writers of all skill levels will find useful—including names, character traits , obsessions, occupations, settings, action verbs , and plenty more.
Whether you’re looking for something specific or you just want to browse the lists for inspiration, if you’re a storyteller, this is one app you’ll be using often. The list of different hues for each color is reason enough to give it a try.
Selecting any topic from the master list takes you to more specific categories which then lead to more specific terms with brief definitions. This app replaces a bookshelf worth of reference materials and keeps them at your fingertips wherever you go.
- Shuffle and search features make it easier to find what you need.
- Color-coded master list shows a collapsed version of the lists available.
- General categories link to more specific lists and defined terms.

View your prompts in landscape or portrait orientation. Scroll through their database of 600 creative writing prompts and save the ones you like. Swipe through your list of favorites to find the perfect prompt for the moment.

Ratings and Reviews
I like this application.
This is all new territory for this man. I’ve always dabbled with writing but never took it seriously until now. I have no idea what I’m getting myself into, but I’m enjoying the learning curve. Things I never thought about before such as arrangement and so are new to me. However by reading and applying these lessons, I find that not only is it educational but also fun. I like this application. R
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review.
Great App! Good for students and authors.
I found this from an Instagram post along with a few others for writers and this one called out to me the most. It can give you a touch of anxiety when the walls start to close in but it’s great because you don’t have time to think. You just type and type and type whatever comes to mind. It’s great for your first draft and getting words documented. Once you complete the challenge, you can copy to word or Google docs. It’s great for authors or maybe even students rushing to get homework done. Love this app.
Hi Lari! Thank you so much for leaving such a wonderful review on our app. We will keep working on it!
I do not find myself using this app that often, mostly out of not "needing" to get out of a writers block very often, but every time I do, I escape it very quickly. I am pleased with the quality of the app; no issues for me, and I am able to find my work to copy over to my documents easily. I would appreciate a customization of the "timeout" period that happens when you stop writing for a bit, but otherwise, I enjoy using it :)

Creative Writing Prompts
When the idea to start a weekly newsletter with writing inspiration first came to us, we decided that we wanted to do more than provide people with topics to write about. We wanted to try and help authors form a regular writing habit and also give them a place to proudly display their work. So we started the weekly Creative Writing Prompts newsletter. Since then, Prompts has grown to a community of more than 450,000 authors, complete with its own literary magazine, Prompted .
Here's how our contest works: every Friday, we send out a newsletter containing five creative writing prompts. Each week, the story ideas center around a different theme. Authors then have one week — until the following Friday — to submit a short story based on one of our prompts. A winner is picked each week to win $250 and is highlighted on our Reedsy Prompts page.
Why we love creative writing prompts
If you've ever sat in front of a computer or notebook and felt the urge to start creating worlds, characters, and storylines — all the while finding yourself unable to do so — then you've met the author's age-old foe: writer's block. There's nothing more frustrating than finding the time but not the words to be creative. Enter our directory! If you're ready to kick writer's block to the curb and finally get started on your short story or novel, these unique story ideas might just be your ticket.
This list of 1800+ creative writing prompts has been created by the Reedsy team to help you develop a rock-solid writing routine. As all aspiring authors know, this is the #1 challenge — and solution! — for reaching your literary goals. Feel free to filter through different genres, which include...
Dramatic — If you want to make people laugh and cry within the same story, this might be your genre.
Funny — Whether satire or slapstick, this is an opportunity to write with your funny bone.
Romance — One of the most popular commercial genres out there. Check out these story ideas out if you love writing about love.
Fantasy — The beauty of this genre is that the possibilities are as endless as your imagination.
Dystopian – Explore the shadowy side of human nature and contemporary technology in dark speculative fiction.
Mystery — From whodunnits to cozy mysteries, it's time to bring out your inner detective.
Thriller and Suspense — There's nothing like a page-turner that elicits a gasp of surprise at the end.
High School — Encourage teens to let their imaginations run free.
Want to submit your own story ideas to help inspire fellow writers? Send them to us here.
After you find the perfect story idea
Finding inspiration is just one piece of the puzzle. Next, you need to refine your craft skills — and then display them to the world. We've worked hard to create resources that help you do just that! Check them out:
- How to Write a Short Story That Gets Published — a free, ten-day course by Laura Mae Isaacman, a full-time editor who runs a book editing company in Brooklyn.
- Best Literary Magazines of 2023 — a directory of 100+ reputable magazines that accept unsolicited submissions.

Beyond creative writing prompts: how to build a writing routine
While writing prompts are a great tactic to spark your creative sessions, a writer generally needs a couple more tools in their toolbelt when it comes to developing a rock-solid writing routine . To that end, here are a few more additional tips for incorporating your craft into your everyday life.
- NNWT. Or, as book coach Kevin Johns calls it , “Non-Negotiable Writing Time.” This time should be scheduled into your routine, whether that’s once a day or once a week. Treat it as a serious commitment, and don’t schedule anything else during your NNWT unless it’s absolutely necessary.
- Set word count goals. And make them realistic! Don’t start out with lofty goals you’re unlikely to achieve. Give some thought to how many words you think you can write a week, and start there. If you find you’re hitting your weekly or daily goals easily, keep upping the stakes as your craft time becomes more ingrained in your routine.
- Talk to friends and family about the project you’re working on. Doing so means that those close to you are likely to check in about the status of your piece — which in turn keeps you more accountable.
Arm yourself against writer’s block. Writer’s block will inevitably come, no matter how much story ideas initially inspire you. So it’s best to be prepared with tips and tricks you can use to keep yourself on track before the block hits. You can find 20 solid tips here — including how to establish a relationship with your inner critic and apps that can help you defeat procrastination or lack of motivation.

The workshops are nice as they give ways for you to use the Triggers in a certain way. Saving prompts is great as well, considering everything generates at random, so you're not going to see the same one twice.”
“Really great palate cleanser if you've been writing and need a little something to distract you while you're subconscious is working out a plotting or dialog problem you've been grappling with. I set the timer and only work in a prompt for 30 min and then get back to my principal project. It's great fun and let's my mind play.”
“I love using this app to jump start my imagination or exercise my writer muscles. Single best writing prompt I've bought in the App Store.”

5 fun (and free) creative writing apps
Updated: January 2021
Whether you want to fill a spare moment with a bit of creative fun, or need inspiration for a writing project, here are five creative writing apps that could help.
They’re all free to use, and I’ve included a mix of iOS and Android options. I have an iPhone myself, but also a handy emulator on my laptop which lets me try out and enjoy apps designed for Android devices.
So, to the apps themselves. Here are the five creative writing apps I’ve been exploring lately:
For Android and iOS
Paperblanks® journal prompts.
This attractive app offers a mix of self-reflective and story prompts, so you can use your writing time for self-discovery or to unleash your imagination. You can tailor the type of prompts given to you by choosing from a range of categories, including Personal/Introspective, Story-A-Day and Just For Fun. Or you can enable all categories to enjoy a pot luck approach! Save the prompts you particularly like using the favourites feature and return to them with fresh eyes later.
For Android devices, visit Google Play to find out more about the Paperblanks app.
For iOS devices, visit the App Store to learn more about the Paperblanks app.
Call of Writing
Popular in Android and new to iOS, Call of Writing invites you to ‘say goodbye to writer’s block’. Gain inspiration from numerous writing prompts or flex your writing muscles with the various challenges available and daily writing reminders.
For Android devices, visit Google Play to find out more about the Call of Writing app.
For iOS devices, visit the App Store to learn more about the Call of Writing app.
For iOS only
In the free version of this app, you can create poems and experiment with word combinations using the clever predictive keyboard. It feels a bit like solving a poetry puzzle. Which words fit together and where will they take you? Switch to the normal keyboard when you want the freedom to insert your own text. While ‘poetry’ is the default mode, you can pay to unlock other packs including Classics, Quotes and Lyrics. You can also install a Dictionary, and there’s a talking robot too!
Visit the App Store to find out more about the CreativeWriter app.
Boasting an impressive range of writing activities and lots of useful advice, this app describes itself as a ‘one-stop creative writing toolkit’. When you launch the app, you’re taken on a journey through various warm up exercises, onwards to character development exercises and finally through to some sample writing prompts. You can complete each exercise in sequence, or jump between them via the navigation menu. When you’re ready, you can pay to unlock even more content, including ‘A Year of Prompts’.
Visit the App Store to find out more about the Writerly app.
For Android only
This app is a handy rhyming dictionary and notepad in one. Type out a line and the dictionary will provide a whole host of rhymes to choose from. You can keep on matching rhymes until you’ve found a combination that you particularly like. Then save it and start afresh. I found myself saving a few separate rhymes in the app itself and then bringing them together in one place (my notebook) later on.
Visit Google Play to find out more about the Rhyme Builder app.
I hope you enjoy trying out some of these creative writing apps. Let me know how you get on. For even more inspiration, check out the writing ideas section of this blog.

AWS News Blog
Build ai apps with partyrock and amazon bedrock.
If you are ready to learn more about Generative AI while having fun and building cool stuff, check out PartyRock.aws . You can experiment, learn all about prompt engineering, build mini-apps, and share them with your friends — all without writing any code or creating an AWS account. You can also start with an app that has been shared with you and remix it to further enhance and customize it.
Using PartyRock To get started, I visit https://partyrock.aws/ , click Sign in , and log in using my Apple, Amazon, or Google account:
After authenticating, I am on the front page of PartyRock. I can review some sample apps, or I can click Build your own app to get started:
I can enter a description of the app that I want to build and use PartyRock’s Generative AI to get a running start, or I can built it myself on a widget-by-widget basis:
I am knee-deep in blog posts for AWS re:Invent right now. While most of my colleagues patiently wait for their draft to be ready, a few of them are impatient and keep asking me (this is the adult version of “Are we there yet?”). While I try to maintain a sense of humor about this, I sometimes get just a bit snarky with them. Let’s see if PartyRock can help. I enter my prompt and click Generate App:
My app ( Snarky Patient Blogger ) is ready within a few seconds, and I enter some input to see if the output has sufficient snark for my needs:
That looks great, so let’s take it apart and see how it works!
The application ( Snarky Patient Blogger ) has two widgets: User Input and Snarky Response . I click the Edit icon on the first widget, and see that it has a title, loading text, and a default value. The title allows widgets to reference each other by name:
This simple widget encapsulates a call to the Amazon Bedrock InvokeModel function. The widget specifies the use of the Claude v2 model, and a simple prompt, which references the User Input widget. I can experiment by changing either one, saving the change, and waiting a second or two for the result. For example, changing the model to Claude Instant gives me a slightly different response:
Now I want a visual representation of the reply. I’ll use a Text Generation widget to find the most important nouns in the response, and an Image Generation widget to visualize the results. I add the first widget and use a simple prompt:
I test it by clicking the Retry icon and the output looks perfect:
I add the Image Generation widget, and fiddle with the prompt a bit. After a minute or two I have what I want:
The finished app looks like this:
Once I am happy with the app, I can Make public and Share :
The finished app is at https://partyrock.aws/u/jeffbarr/E-FXPUkO7/Snarky-Patient-Blogger and you are welcome to play with it. You can also log in and click Remix to use it as the starting point for an even better app of your own.
But Wait, There’s More As is usually the case with my blog posts, I did not have room to show you every last feature in detail. Here are a few that I skipped:
Empty App – I used the App Builder in my example, but I can also choose Start from an Empty App , select my widgets, and set them up as desired:
Remix – I can start with an existing app (mine or another public one) and Remix it to customize or enhance it:
Chatbot Widget – I can interact with my app using a prompt as a starting point:
@ Referencing – I can use the “@” to reference other widgets by name while I am building my app:
Advanced Settings – Some of the widgets offer advanced settings. For example, the Text Generation widget gives me the option to control the Temperature and Top P parameters to the model:
Backstage – The PartyRock Backstage lets me see my apps and my cumulative consumption of PartyRock credits:
Things to Know Here are a couple of things that you should know about PartyRock:
Pricing – For a limited time, AWS offers new PartyRock users a free trial without the need to provide a credit card or sign up for an AWS account, so that you can begin learning fundamental skills without the worry of incurring costs. You can track your credit consumption in the Backstage , as shown above. Credit usage is calculated based on your input tokens, output tokens, and generated images; for full details read the Billing and Support section of the PartyRock FAQ .
Model Access – We plan to give you access to additional models over time.
In the Works – We are working on even more widgets and features, so stay tuned for more information.
