Listen to your subconscious
by Raz Elmaleh
Ideas are constantly bubbling out of your unconscious mind. You don't really need to brainstorm them. Whatever you do, experience, see, or feel automatically tips your unconscious mind into action. Then, minutes, hours, days, or years later it suddenly pukes the results up into your consciousness: an image, line, name, plot, etc.
Your job is simply to ACCEPT what your mind produces on its own, WRITE it down before you forget, and realize that this is your best stuff. Then, you may DEVELOP that grain into a short story, novel, screenplay, or other.
