When you've been writing and creating content consistently. You really need to ask yourself what you should write about on a daily basis. This is my always dilemma when I've started writing every day.

I’ve come up with this idea last January when I start my daily writing practice in 200wordsaday.com. As I’ve gone with my writing habit, the actual writing itself was a little bit easy as you do it every day.

πŸ€” The Problem:


The hard part is having the motivations to write when you don’t feel like writing and the other thing is what I should write about.

I'm having a hard time thinking and deciding what I should be writing about, even though I have a lot of awesome topic idea on my list. Plus, I’ve got confused about what I should be writing about. The time that spent on thinking could be spent on actually writing.

I would like it to automatically present the topics to me rather than me going through my list.

 πŸ§° The solution:

I've checked online if there are available writing prompts generator but it was too focused on writing fictions. I want something that will go through my own list and just randomly pick topics for me and I just press the next button if I didn’t like the currently selected topics.

This eliminates the manual process of going through your list.


β€”

πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»On development:

Actually, I’ve already started working on it with actual coding but I’ve decided to pivot with β€œNo code” to test my idea early and to be able to qualify to join in Makers festival πŸ˜‰.


The Ideapickr works on your browser as well as on your mobile phone.

    @chrisdeuda Hi! I'm just peeking it in, it looks good. Is the personal list something you have to construct yourself? Could be nice finding a way to generate it as well, given interests e.g.?
    Anyway, voted, good luck!

      @sarasilva Thanks! The initial list is just dummy data, but you can clear it and add your own lists of ideas. Do you prefer if there are already existing topics?

      @chrisdeuda to me, it would help to have something especially to get started, or for your more-in-the-blank days :)

      @sarasilva yeah agree I think writers like to see what they could write about, rather than put topics on their own. I'm still thinking of adding more into it.
