The power went out at 8 p.m. last night. The back up generator kicked on and then flickered off at 10 p.m. the family was in the dark and huddled together in front of the fireplace for the rest of the night and into the morning hours.

Oh, a generator is exactly what i need! I need a generator for ideas, really good, deep ideas! Come on, little generator: work! But don’t I know? Nothing can be generated without fuel! Not even an idea. So, little generator: Live!

Our RV lost its electrical generator in Northwest Territories, bumped off by a hundred miles of unpaved road. We went there just because I wanted to be able to post the huge teal-green sticker on the Places We’d Been in Canada map on the side of the couch. Dad tried to get someone to reattach it but just ended up giving it away. Must have been a nice thing to get for someone in Northwest Territories.

A generator i don’t know what it is.

A generator of heat: Machine. Human. Lamp. Someone who studies generations. Maker.

The generator was
Going and they only had minutes
To either get
Everyone out of the plant or just let them die.
The doctor was frantic; he couldn’t cross his own time line,’but couldn’t come up with any other way of saving everyone.

Provides and sets in motion. It creates without being in of itself part of the creation. The begining and cause. Breath of life.

Lightning flashes across the sky. It inevitably strikes the tallest tower in the town, the power plant. The small city goes black, hoping, preying for a miracle that the backup generators will work this time. One small child sits next to her sister’s hospital bed, wishing the respirator would turn back on. She knows her expectations are too high. Her dreams are all crushed when she awakes the next morning, the power is still out.

This site is a generator of ideas for me—though most tend to run in the semi-autobiographical or non-fiction vein. I guess it’s easier to be reflective than wildly creative when you have just one minute to spout out your thoughts.

Generator. I remember 4 years ago generators were very popular among teenagers, when Friendster was still popular.
When you say generator, aside from electric generators (lol), I remember Dollie Love (bling generator) haha

The power had gone out and all we could do was try and find some candles. We set them up, and a game of Risk, right in the middle of the floor. We were going to call some food to be delivered, however, we realized the phone was out too. So we sat, and waited, and played.

Hi dear we have fixed an inverter in our house. What do you feel about power cut? Why are you going to bother. You have lot of works to do. You are always busy

The cracking, electric whir of creation in a silence otherwise palpable. Something was being born here, born of technology in a synthetic, sterile place with none of the warmth or organics of biotic birth. This thing would be as unfeeling and cold as its metallic mother.

“Go, go, go! Get to the generator!”
Debris and rubble were flying behind us as the enemy fighters were bombing our forces.
“Sir, we are outnumbered. We have to pull back!”
“This is our last chance. We can’t.”
By Brandon Adams URL on 02.29.2012
“Turn it off!”
“What? Where is it?!”
There’s not enough time.
“I can’t find it!”
“We don’t have long!”
“I can’t see it!”
There’s never enough time.

the generator was sputtering, coughing, and gasping. It was about to run out of fuel. Mark looked at Kate ruefully. That’s it, he thought. We’re toast. If we lose the lights, we’re dead.
By Rick Colby URL on 02.29.2012
Work on it when you want to keep it.
Keep it warm in times of darkness
Water it in times of drought
Generate love. Everyday.
Shine light on it in the dark.
Pull it closer when it wants to run, hide, or vanish.
And love shall Generate you
when you need it the most.

a generator is usually a device that runs on gasoline and produces electricity.

The generator was making noise again. It always did this when Jim had a girl over. Why couldn’t it just go smoothly? He needed this now? Maybe she won’t notice. Jennifer looked at him oddly. Yep. She noticed.
By Rick Colby on 02.29.2012
it a machine that helps keep energy when the electricity goes out :) boty chheecks

Being an idea generator is often a tremendously tough task in certain positions. Often people look down on new things. Change is hard to generate in this generation.
By Roger on 02.29.2012
the genertator screamed AGGGHHHHH! so we had to replace it…
By Lewis URL on 02.29.2012
it helps create power when the electricty goes out :)…………………….(:

Things sparked and snapped and came to life. I watched in awe as you threw the world into motion.
“Here was I,” I shouted against the squall, “thinking that it was done for, that we were finished! ”
You answered not in words, but in soft light. You answered by returning me to where I had been, and I walked to the fridge and took out a class of ice.
Something was missing, though. And I couldn’t quite place it. You watched me as I stood and waved away the fumes, but something was missing. I glanced down and realized I wasn’t wearing any shoes.
“What did you mean when you said I couldn’t come back?” I asked with a frown, and suddenly it all went dark again.

My husband bought a generator last year to replace another generator that died. I thought that was wasteful and disgusting to spend so much money for something that I did not feel appropriate for us at that time. Oh well, I lost that argument.
By Brenda Evers URL on 02.29.2012
I can think of many types of generators from science fiction. In SG-1, they use naquadah generators as power sources. I think there’s such thing as an electromagnetic generator in Doctor Who, but I forgot its use.

This is my first try at this and I don’t really know what I’m supposed to be doing. Guess I’ll find out in 50 seconds!

electricity anywhere – a genny – just like my friend Jenny
By ali on 02.29.2012
the generator roared to life. finally.
there had been no heat, no light, nothing.
nothing for days and days, it was getting old.
now what? looking around I began to notice some ugliness that up til then had escaped my notice.
By Susan Bodley on 02.29.2012
a generator is a mechanical piece of a equitment. Either extremely useful or quite invasive. electrical and technical to use errrr…….
By Pandorajk on 02.29.2012
generator is something that makes a product or works to create something new
By Shelly Snipes URL on 02.29.2012
i just wasted half of the time thinking that the generator would give me a word. nothing else to say about it.
By J. on 02.29.2012
I wish I could be a much better idea generator. But in order for me to do that, I really would have to step out of my normal comfort zone. And if I could, I’d love to come up with board game ideas! My brother and I used to do that a lot when we were kids!
By Bryan Edward URL on 02.29.2012
I use my generator for camping and to give power to the camp Tralior.
By Kahthryn URL on 02.29.2012
The generator powers up my camp trailer .
It’s something useful here in Forks when the power goes out and you don’t hae a wood stove. But they’re loud and annoying. i prefer to go without electricity and enoy how quiet life was prior to electricity.

They are only on for two hours a day. 4:00 am to 6:00 am. We wake up very early, just to enjoy having electricity. That’s when we have our breakfast, which is my favorite meal of the day because it’s warm. 4 to 6, the two hours of warmth. I wish I could just sleep all other times. But no, I must go to school, which doesn’t have electricity either.
