Edward De Bono has written about using random input in creative thinking and problem solving.
I find I can get writing inspiration from random words, pictures, things, etc. I’ve created a handout sheet with some ideas for using random input for writing. It doesn’t matter what kind of writing you want to do, introducing a bit of randomness can be inspiring. It’s about freeing up your imagination … and your writing. There’s no right or wrong way to do any of these writing activities – just write what you feel like writing and let your imagination go where it wants.
