Brainstorming. How do you do it?
For me, I take a piece of paper and write whatever specific or broad themes that come to my mind for a few minutes. I then explore whatever I have written, and add a little detail here and there. When a certain topic/theme catches my attention for more than a short moment I start expanding those details, and eventually rearrange them into a skeletal structure of the topic that I might write about.
I keep a note book, write down what I see, what people do, Notes on the scene, descriptions etc... then poor over the note book and write.
A Notebook! I've thought of that before.
The most wonderful ideas may hit me at times that I'm not writing and sometimes I just can't recall them later on when I write. Writing them down would help me remember.
Seems like a small, pocket-sized notebook would do well.
Sounds like you have a great plan. I actually brainstorm on the computer - Open up Microsoft Word and write every little thing that comes to mind for five minutes. I refuse to let myself stop typing. Eventually all of those nonrelated mini ideas turn into something bigger, and I start to see a story forming...

I was wondering if some of you guys could help me brainstorm. Could some of you guys just leave a few quotes, links, topic ideas, etc to help me brainstorm? That would be greatly appreciated.
