1. When you dream, write them down as soon as you wake up. You can get ideas from your own night time journey.
2. Call friends and family just to chat. Find out what's going on in their lives. Someone is bound to have something juicy to write about.
3. Take a break. Don't think about it. Go "people watch" mall or airport, see a movie, or attend a sporting event. Something is bound to pop out at you.
4. Or, just watch the news.
