Make a list of problems. Generate as many ideas as you can in 10 minutes. It could be ‘You are locked in a cage with a bear,’ or ‘You realize you took the wrong pill.’ It could be as bizarre as ‘You wake up to find your dog has been elected mayor of your town!’ Nothing is too silly; nothing is too ridiculous. The point of this exercise is not to come up with quality stuff but to have fun and let your imagination run wild. So, be open. Don’t let the police in your head have too much control over your mind.
Ready, set, go!
