There are probably several things you can do. What I like to do for realistic fiction or fantasy that starts off seeming like a realistic fiction is picture a random person that I saw on the street or in the car next to me and let myself wonder what their lives could be like, or what they might have been like in their youth. From there, you just keep thinking of wilder, crazier situations until you have something so far out there that maybe- just maybe- you could work with it. Another thing you could do is take the basic idea or plot from a book you recently read or a movie you saw and re-write it the way you would want it to be. If it should have had a different ending, or the character didn't have a name and description that fit together in your opinion, then change it, make it your own! Play with it a little; the result could be amazing, unlike anything seen before. Lastly, try using different wordings. If you find yourself using the word "evening" a lot, try using slightly more specific words like "twilight", "sunset", or "dusk". If you describe things as "smooth" a lot, try using other words with the same or similar meaning within the context, like "worn", "tender", or "level". These methods are not guaranteed to work, because every writer has his/her own style, and different methods work for different people. Try other methods as well as the ones listed above; you'll never know what works.

When I took my creative writing class (WAAAYYY back when), our instructor had us choose between a few different series of paintings. There were 3 paintings per series and we had to come up with one story for all three paintings. That was a lot of fun.

*Don't worry about it! I've gone through some serious slumps before. You might feel like all your ideas are crap now, but don't give up. *Read plenty of books, watch lots of movies- in other words, absorb some creativity from others. ;) If you can't think up an idea, take bits and pieces of ideas that are already out there and mush 'em together. Ta-da! You have created something new. I find myself doing that quite frequently. I'll find an aspect of a story I like, and I try to incorporate it into my story. Of course, you have to be careful- don't overdo it or make it obvious. *Practice. Even if all you have are little nubbins of ideas or if you think they suck, just write 'em out. Sometimes, you just have to write. Even if you're sure whatever you're writing is lousy...carry a notebook with you. Always be on the lookout for ideas! Hope I helped! :D

Pick the right topics. You can't write if you have nothing to write about.Finding and choosing the right creative writing topics can be challenging. There is a big difference between having to say something and having something to say. So how do we go about finding the right topics?

Donall Originally Answered: Why do people take creative writing classes if they don't want to be creative?
I've spoken to several people who thought that a creative writing class would "teach them to be creative." Apparently many people believe that there is some "secret" and if they learn it, they will effortlessly pump out books and get rich. I kid you not. They keep asking "How do you do it?" and when I tell them that you sit down in front of a keyboard and type for 200 hours, they stare at me and say, "No, really."
