    If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas for a story, try setting your story in a different time and/or place, or consider writing about a subject you’re unfamiliar with. You can also come up with ideas by brainstorming or you can use any of the following techniques to generate ideas:

    1. Look at your favorite movie or television show and think about what you like about it.
    2. Read newspapers, magazines, and books.
    3. Go out and observe people and situations around you. This can be anything from people’s daily routines to the guy you see at the coffee shop every morning.
    4. Ask open-ended questions and listen to the answers.
    5. Take note of things that make you laugh or cry.
    6. Ask yourself, “If this were the last day of my life, what would I do?”
    7. Go to a coffee shop.
