Anyone here good at coming up with writing prompts?

I could come up with my very own, but I can't think of any good ones. I was wondering if anyone could help. They have to be creative writing prompts for fun because I rather not think too much.

I've always used this site and the magazine itself to get a push when I was hitting a wall ...

My brother and I have a fun one we use, too, which I learned in Creative Writing 101. Pick random story elements out of the air (character profession, location, character name, genre, prop, etc) and after you have 20-30 of them assemble them and write.

Example:
Locations: New Orleans, Bayou, The Year 2042
Events: Earthquake, Flood
Characters (Professions/Sex): Josette Duvet (Historian, Female), Loic Duvet (Explorer, Male), Etienne Martinne (Student, Male), Noelie Lanoux (Student, Female)
Prop: Necklace, Talisman, Gold Cross
Genre: Romance, Slice of Life

That's a short one with just 18 elements in total. You can make it as short or long as you like to fit how detailed you want your story to be.
