We know you guys looove Minecraft. (The last Ink Splot 26 Minecraft blog post got almost 500 Comments!) But since we’re living in the real world, and not a Minecraft world, we figured it would be fun to create a Minecraft name generator to give you an alternate reality Minecraft name.
Don’t worry if you’re new to our name generators. It’s as easy as putting a block down. Find the first initial of your first name in the list below. That word is your Minecraft first name. Then find the month of your birthday. That word is your Minecraft last name. For example, my name begins with an R and my birthday is in July, so my Minecraft name is Poisonous Potato Creeper.

Hippolyte posted this awesome-tastic challenge for you on the Fan Fiction Message Board!
So! This is a thing I saw in a STACKS Message Board a LONG time ago and though I’ve never participated myself, I figured it’s high time someone brings a new writing challenge. Here’s the deal:
You are to write a drabble inspired by the first song that comes up on shuffle. Grab your phones/ipods/mp3s/playlists or anything you have with music stored in it and a shuffle option, and enable said option. Your task is to write a short story (fan fiction or original) inspired by the song, for as long as the song is playing. Once the song is over, you stop writing and completely leave it be.
I hope everyone has fun! I also hope you’re not weak enough to decline the challenge. Mwahaha!
So leave your song title and artist in the Comments, and then go to the Fan Fiction Message Board to share your whole story.
PurpleFashionista86 posted these questions on the Harry Potter Message Board but they could also apply to any characters in any book series.

It’s that time again. Back. To. School. To get you in the back-to-school zone, for today’s Writing Prompt, your “homework” is to take the 25 words below and generate your own poem. The poems you guys came up with for the Spring Poetry Generator totally gave us spring fever!
You can add articles (little words like “a”, and “the”), verbs, or anything that will help it flow, but try to include as many of these 25 words as you can in your poem. Any style of poem works – rhyming, non-rhyming, couplet, haiku, free-form, or even random. It’s up to you!
Leave your poem in the Comments. We can’t wait to take a lesson . . . from YOU!

Woof! Woof! This dog’s name is Fatboy and he seems like he might have gotten into some trouble! What would you say he might be thinking?

You expect a book to be totally amazing, and you eagerly tear into the first few chapters only to discover . . . the book is utterly disappointing!!! Reader reject!
Either it’s completely boring, or not what you expected, or it started off great but now it can’t seem to hold your interest. What do you do? We want to know for today’s Writing Prompt . . .
Do you give up on bad books . . . or do you finish every book you start?
Bare your soul and tell us about your rejected reads in the Comments below!

I’m a sucker for a great roller coaster ride. Did it leave me winded? Did I almost puke? Did my soul leave my body at least once? Did I scream, “WHY DID I AGREE TO GET ON THIS RIDE?!” If yes to all the above, that was the BEST RIDE EVER!
If you love roller coaster rides, try our extremely awesome Roller Coaster Name Generator!!! Extra extreme! Extra wild!
If you’re new to our name generators, have no fear. Here’s how this works: Find the first initial of your first name in the list below. That word is your roller coaster first name. Then look at the list of the months below and find the month of your birthday. That word is your roller coaster last name. For example, my name begins with an E and my birthday is in March, so my new roller coaster name would be Sky Fury! Continue reading
Even if you’re not an intergalactic space traveler yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t go exploring with your mind. So we want to know . . .
If you discovered the most perfect planet in the universe, what would be on it? What would it look like, smell like, taste like? What would you do if you could spend an entire day on your perfect planet?
I know what my perfect planet would be like. My perfect planet would look a lot like Earth, but way better. It would be super-duper green, just green fields for miles, and amazing forests, and breathtaking waterfalls and lakes. And it would be full of the friendliest, cutest animals (all vegan, of course, because it’d be stressful if they ate each other), and with trees that produce the most delicious fruit in the world . . . . regular fruit, but also fruit that tastes like pizza! And sushi! And hamburgers! And the bugs would all be very pretty, too, and not scary-looking or vicious. No mosquito bites on this planet! When the wind blows — only a gentle breeze — it would sound like an orchestra of tiny bells playing my favorite songs. There would be perfect sandy beaches where it never gets too hot, and even on the snowy mountain tops it would never get too cold. I would never need to wear more layers than a sweater over my t-shirt! It would always be perfectly sunny during the day and cool at night. The water running through the rivers and streams would taste pure and sweet, and nothing on the planet would be poisonous. The air would be ultra-fresh and randomly smell like cookies baking (the best smell in the universe)!
Let’s hear what your perfect planet would be like. Share your dream planet’s description in the Comments below!

Quark sure is one excited golden retriever! I think he is in his kitchen trying to beg for some crispy bacon!
Here is my caption: “Bacon, bacon, I smell bacon. There’s only one thing that smells like bacon, and that’s BACON!”
What do YOU think Quark would be saying if he could talk? Write your own caption in the Comments!
