Take it from me, there will be times when you’ll need a little bit of help in getting your songwriting process underway.
But when this happens to you, be comforted by the fact that there are free online tools available that are able to get your creative juices flowing again.
As a songwriter who comes up with musical ideas much more easily than lyrical ones, I use these online random word generators and (song) writing prompts whenever I find myself in a situation where I’m fresh out of songwriting ideas.
It’s amazing that through randomness and chaos a sense of order sometime emerges
Here are a list of these online random word generators and (song) writing prompts to get you started:
Songwriting Lyric/Title Prompts
- FAWM Plot Generator
- ModPlug Title Generator
- Song Lyrics Generator

There’s even more songwriting tools available here
You’ll notice that some of these tools are a bit tongue in cheek but there are some that are seriously good. Either way, by using these tools you’ll take your creativity to places you’ve never imagined.
I’d be interested to hear how you go with any of these. If you come across any other songwriting tools that you feel will help anyone with their songwriting process, feel free to let me know about it.
