Firing Your Imagination

1. Take the first mundane thing that comes into your head. Write down what you would like to happen to that thing or in that situation. Don’t allow yourself to be restricted by the boundaries of social convention, morality or even reality.

2. Pick one of your characters. Write down that characters current job. Now write down his or her ideal job. Think about the jobs they may have while going from current to ideal. Think about how they came to change or lose those jobs. Make the jobs as mundane or outlandish as you like.

3. Imagine a room of purest white. The room is square and the approximately fifty feet by fifty feet. The walls are ten feet high. Write down the things you would change about that room. These can be anything from size, shape and colour to things you want to put in the room.

If you have any trouble then remember the feeling you get when you unexpectedly hear one of your favourite songs. This should get your spine tingling.
