      I have a vivid imagination so I start to write a story about my day, then I think about the things I did.  That usually gives me ideas. If I had a longer attention span I would be writing right now.  Coming to the forums and reading hubs also helps inspire ideas.

        Think about what your friends are doing. Take their initial ideas and try to write from that. :- Mathew

    I hardly ever struggle with writers block anymore, but there was a time when I used to often. I started writing anyway even if I thought it was useless, and eventually just by putting words down you'll find that ideas begin to form. Sometimes it's just a matter of opening a Word document and writing anything at all, even if it's babbling, to get your brain into the right state to write.
