When I don't feel inspired I tend to brainstorm by taking two stories and combining them. I once took a Bible story and rewrote it as a mafia tale. Combine The Godfather with Finding Nemo. Or what would happen if you combined Twilight with Saving Private Ryan?? Imagine a vampire braving a terrible war to find the human he loved. You could combine Dawn of the Dead with Bridget Jones Diary! haha It just gets you thinking outside the box and makes it seem like anything is possible again.
