Taken from my preparation for my 'talk'.

We all pick up on ideas every day – whether consciously or unconsciously.  Something someone says or we overhear; something that happens to us; a picture, maybe something on Tumblr that a friend points out to us; an article someone suggests.  These things are as individual as we are.  We may choose to use them immediately; we may put them to one side for later use.

All of which is great and helps when we come to write, but doesn’t necessarily start us writing.  Here I’m thinking of the people like me who write short things, not those who produce the 100,000 word epics, or who write multi-chaptered fics where each chapter is 5,000 words long.  The most I’ve ever written is 14,000.  I’ve triumphantly written two big bangs over 10,000 words, but generally I write ficlets or fics up to 5,000 words.

Which means I need inspiration much more often.  So I’ve come up with some suggestions for what helps me and therefore something amongst the list may help others.
