Crazy Cat Collector

Raymond Chandler once said, that when he got stuck writing a story, he simply had a guy walk into the room with a gun in his hand. What that means is, to push the story forward, he introduced an element that did exactly that. Wrimuse Studio combines story elements randomly to serve up fresh combinations – millions of them!
Wrimuse has existed in many iterations, as a tool that generates creative writing prompts for fiction writers of all kinds. Wrimuse Studio is the latest iteration, and is currently in early release. Complete a story or scene based on a randomly generated outline or a photograph, or get an essay topic presented. You can also use built in generators to create characters on the fly!

Here is the trailer for Nebula Rescue…
