Are you feeling stuck and uninspired when it comes to generating content with a language model like Open AI’s ChatGPT? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of creativity to get the ideas flowing again. That’s where creative prompts come in!

Creative prompts are questions, statements, or scenarios that are designed to spark your imagination and get your creative juices flowing. 

You can use these creative prompts courtesy of AI Breakfast on Twitter to generate all kinds of content, from blog posts and social media updates to poems and short stories. While we wouldn’t recommend using a language model for professional writing, it’s a brilliant way to at least generate ideas or frameworks for larger projects. 

Before we head into the prompts, take note of how specific and lengthy each prompt is. The more context and information you provide, the more polished and understandable the language model’s responses will be. Here are a few examples of creative prompts that you can use to get started:

‘I want you to act as a text based adventure game. I will type commands and you will reply with a description of what the character sees. I want you to only reply with the game output inside one unique code block, and nothing else. Do not write explanations. Do no type commands unless I instruct you to do so. When I need to tell you something in English, I will do so by putting text inside curly brackets {like this}. My first command is wake up.’

‘I want you to act as a smart domain name generator. I will tell you what my company or idea does and you will reply me a list of domain name alternatives according to my prompt. You will only reply the domain list, and nothing else. Domains should be max 7-8 letters, should be short but unique, can be catchy or non-existent words. Do not write explanations. Reply ‘Ok’ to confirm.’

If you’d just like a place to start, AI Breakfast also shared 130+ quick prompts on Twitter for you to try. Here are some of our favorites:

‘I want you to act as a’: 

  • Storyteller
  • Debater
  • Translator
  • Spongebob
  • Chess player
  • UX/UI designer
  • English tutor

These are just a few ideas to get you started, but the possibilities are endless! In a pursuit like this, the name of the game is creativity. Be as silly or as absurd in your queries or commands as you like. Just remember that the more specific and detailed you can be in your prompts, the more engaging and interesting your responses could be. ChatGPT is built to handle really complex queries such as those listed above.

If you’re feeling a little reluctant to try queries of your own, type those above into the text box and see what comes up. Who knows, you might end up with the bones of the next great masterpiece. All that’s left to do is flesh it out.

I hail from the awe-inspiring beauty of South Africa. Born and raised in Pretoria, I've always had a deep interest in local history, particularly conflicts, architecture, and our country's rich past of being a plaything for European aristocracy. 'Tis an attempt at humor. My interest in history has since translated into hours at a time researching everything from the many reasons the Titanic sank (really, it's a wonder she ever left Belfast) to why Minecraft is such a feat of human technological accomplishment. I am an avid video gamer (Sims 4 definitely counts as video gaming, I checked) and particularly enjoy playing the part of a relatively benign overlord in Minecraft. I enjoy the diverse experiences gaming offers the player. Within the space of a few hours, a player can go from having a career as an interior decorator in Sims, to training as an archer under Niruin in Skyrim. I believe video games have so much more to teach humanity about community, kindness, and loyalty, and I enjoy the opportunity to bring concepts of the like into literary pieces.
