    I often find that a lack of ideas is really the mind rejecting the ideas as “weak”.
    When in doubt, I just start babbling, letting random thoughts flow into the air, or onto the page, and most of them are less than stellar, but eventually I usually hit upon something interesting.
    I think the key is to let go. The mind is full of thoughts, we just tend to forget most of them as quickly as we think of them.
    Sometimes brainstorming can be very freeing, letting go of your control and simply riding your own stream of consciousness.

      Absolutely Adam. Just because we have an idea, doesn’t mean it is worth following up on. You probably have something, when you suggest our brain subconsciously rejects weak ideas. But sometimes it isn’t so much the idea, rather the way we are tackling it.

        Mmm. There’s a time and place for all things. Sometimes I embrace the random thoughts that bubble up in my mind, other times I use music and quiet places to help me focus, ignoring the random in favor of one project that I’ve chosen to work on.
