Typically I turn to metal (Metallica, Staind), emo (Our Lady Peace, Blue October), or cynical folk rock (Marcy Playground, Tom Petty, Simon and Garfunkel, Crosby Stills and Nash, Beck).And I wonder why my stuff is dark.
Road trip! I don't care what the weather is like, something about being in a moving vehicle gets the prose flowing. I'll bring someone along and play the 'what if' game. The more bizarre and off kilter the suggestions, the more likely I'll write about it. (Hugs)Indigo
I'll go for a drive or dig out a favorite book or CD that I hadn't listened to in a while, see what gets stirred up.
Keep it clean, keep it classy, and jokes are always appreciated.
