1. Hangout with friends
Yes! you can get inspired by friends, if your friends are inspiration to you. But you can turn them as well to be your source of inspiration. When they present a topic in your discussion with you, or you otherwise. Have an eagle eye in such topic, to see what they don’t see. You can convert that into writing.
2. Outsource stories for inspirations
If you can’t think of your own story topic, open up a newspaper or Google an interesting subject. Find a headline and read the story. Write an entirely new story based on this topic, or use this existing story in a new, creative way.
Read other work to find new topics to write about or angles on similar topics. Then write a poem about what you’ve learned. Learning about something new is like Watching a movie for inspiration. Look for characters to build on, dialogue to work with, or landscapes to set your stories in. Then, use these elements to write your own story or blog.

Select a page from a newspaper, magazine, or book and grab a black permanent marker. Glace at the page, and look for words that strike you. Make a line through the words you don’t want to use with your marker, leaving just a few words. The remaining words make up your poem.
