IDEAS from a HAT!
Title and theme suggestions for writers and artists in need of a little inspiration
Have you ever needed an idea for a creative writing assignment, or a theme for a short story or comic book?  Me too.  Years ago, I came up with "Ideas From A Hat" to help me in those times of writer's-block.  Basically, I wrote about 100 possible titles on little slips of paper, then threw them into a hat.  When stuck for a little inspiration, I would reach into the hat and draw out, oh, like three of these titles.  Generally, I either was inspired by the title itself, or some odd combination of all three, or, in thinking about the titles I had drawn, I came up with something else.  Now, I am offering the same creativity-inducing tool to you, my e-friend.  There are no rules...do with these suggestions what you will.  I offer them, copyright free, to anyone who wants them.  Simply run your cursor willy-nilly over the green "hat" to the right, let it rest on some part, and a number will appear over your cursor.  Below, there are several themes and title ideas with corresponding numbers.  If that doesn't work for you, just skip down to the list below and see if anything strikes your fancy.  Above all, have a good time!  Creating stuff should be fun!
