So I came across the idea of one-roll dungeon generator. I think if was a post by D&D on Facebook. And the link went to here.
I saw Brian Holland’s One-roll Generator spreadsheet and I was like I can use this for writing exercises. With Brian’s spreadsheets(there are four different generators) you have to do a little work, i.e. roll the die.
There is another site here where you don’t have to do much.
And still more here.
Part of the problem I often face is not knowing where to start. And instead of diving in, I flounder. I understand there is no right answer, or right place to start. However, i just freeze and lock up as the pen hovers about the blank white page.
I can get some things down. I can’t make list of things I don’t know. Lists of books to read. And lists of names. But making it come together for a first draft, that is proving difficult.
With these generators I can let randomness decide where to start. (The only problem is I might just keep punching the generate button. I might not get anything done).
