The plot machine is a feature of the Script Frenzy website. When the Script Frenzy website loads, the plot machine loads in the upper right hand side. Three sections are included in the plot machine: an inciting incident, a character, and a plot. The machine comes preloaded with an automatically generated story when the main page loads. If the user doesn't like the plot presented upon loading the page, they may click the "Go" button for a different story. The plot machine has been a figurehead of the Script Frenzy homepage since the beginning of the event to help answer the question, "What will people write about?"

The plot machine also exists on the Script Frenzy Young Writers Program homepage. The story elements are more youth-friendly in that plot machine.

Example stories

  • In a world where mustaches are illegal, a traveling shoe salesman swims across the Pacific Ocean.
  • After consuming a powerful laxative, a ruthless gold digger fights to take down corporate America.
  • In a world ruled by children, a flock of radioactive parrots hijacks a bus with a stowaway on board.
  • After shrinking to 1/4 of normal size, a hamster with impulse-control problems attempts to rewrite Finnish history.
