What kind of writing prompts do other people use to help get the creative juices flowing? I tend to visualize everything I write as if it's a movie, and I usually have actors picked out for the roles of the main characters. I have their pictures saved along with images of settings to help me describe things and I also love creating mock covers for books. When I get stuck I look back at my pictures and it helps me get started again. This is the kind of thing I used to get my students to do when I was teaching English and it is so much fun!
