Buy one of those little notebooks. They're $0.99 at your corner drugstore. Now, when you're outside and you think of something... let's say you're looking at a puddle in the road... you pull out your notebook and write, “the morning dew was as wet as a puddle in the road.”

Hey, that's good!

Your notebook will come to feel like an extension of yourself. Write in it every day, and before long you, too, will be able to enter that divine creative state at will.
