Story-O-Meter | Beano’s Random Story Generator!

Where will your imagination and our random story generator lead you? Unleash your inner writer with the magic of storytelling using Beano’s Story-O-Meter. 

This is our random plot generator that will give you the inspiration you need for characters, settings and events in your story.

How does the story idea generator work?

To use the Story-O-Meter, first decide if you want to play with 3, 5 or 8 icons. 

Once you’ve chosen, just press the big red button and the Story-O-Meter will chose what ingredients your story will have. 

What happens when I generate my random story?

You’ll see images that show the different steps in your story, from people to places, objects to actions, so you’ll have everything you need to kick start your inspiration. 

The only thing our magical random story generator can’t give you is a pen! (Well, obviously, that’s not the ONLY thing we can’t do – it can’t get you toast in the morning or take the dog out when it’s raining, but it is definitely awesome at helping you to tell stories, and that’s all you want!)

And remember, if you get stuck at any point, just press the button with a question mark and it will tell you where everything is.

What to do with your story

The Story-O-Meter is en excellent writing prompt generator. What do you see in the images? What’s happening from one to the next? Grab a pen and let your story flow! Or, think about what the images are showing you and tell your story aloud to your friend, a family member… or even your guinea pig!
