Prompt Generator and Links:
Grab three pieces of paper and three bags- plastic or paper, doesn't matter. Really any container will do.
Fold the paper in order to make a lot of even sections. Usually I fold about five or six times, sometimes more. Once folded write a character name in each section - both fandom named characters and also extras as you would like. Extras can be original characters, or random extras like young boy, policeman, dog, etc. Label this container characters.
Fold the second paper and in each seciton write a setting like cemetery, on a boat, at night, at a train station, etc. You can come up with tons of these if you name cities, seasons, modes of transportation, geographical features, and buildings. Again, cut them out, put them in the container, and label it settings.
The last paper you will fold again, and in each section write one or two prompt words such as promise or lie, or events such as accident or wedding.
Now draw one piece from each bag. This is a way to generate ideas which works particularly well for short stories or drabbles. Also, you can "Go Green" and use an online random generator to mix up the lists and you can use the first one that populates from each list.
If you had killed Watson you would not have gotten out of this room alive. -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Three Garridebs.
He gave no explanations and I asked for none. By long experience I had learned the wisdom of obedience. -John Watson, The Adventure of the Illustrious Client
Our official detectives may blunder in the matter of intelligence, but never in that of courage... London dangers were the privilege of the London Force. -John Watson, The Adventure of the Red Circle.
I give you my word of honour- and I have never broken it in my life- that I will take a cab straight to the police station and give you away, unless you let me share this adventure with you. -John Watson, Adventure of Sir Charles Augustus Milverton.
A man with so large a brain must have something in it. -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
What ineffable twaddle! -John Watson, A Study in Scarlet
Life is commonplace; the papers are sterile; audacity and romance seem to have passed forever from the criminal world. Can you ask me, then, whether I am ready to look into any new problem, however trivial it may prove? -Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
"A letter of yours was found in the dead man's pocket, and we know by it that you had planned to pass last night at his house."
You know that it is my greatest joy and privilege to help you. -John Watson, The Devils Foot
There was a curious secretive streak in the man which led to many dramatic effects, but left even his closest friend guessing as to what his exact plans might be. He pushed to an extreme the axiom that the only safe plotter was he who plotted alone. I was nearer to him than anyone else, and yet I was always conscious of the gap between. -John Watson, The Illustrious Client
