Got writer’s block? Step outside with a pen and notebook and find the words you’re missing. Keep your eyes peeled for a sidewalk message, a graffiti-covered wall or an abandoned sign. Once you see a word, make a list of all the emotions and images the word inspires. Use the word as a title of a short story, poem or chapter of a novel. What would you write about the word “steam”?
