I just found an exercise which yielded good results for me in writing stories. Combine three words as below and write a story containing all three. This exercise helps you think in a right brain way, laterally connecting disparate ideas. See what other threesomes you can conjur up!
A female hell’s angel, going to Ikea, A bomb
A Seamstress, sharpening pencils , Linguini
A tree surgeon, a hymn book, packing a rucksack
A Tom Jones Lookalike, training an animal, a plank
A broken key, watching girls, a schoolchild with dreams
Riding Horseback, A digital watch, a market trader
A Motorway station, Dancing with a person half their age, an alcoholic father.
An impersonator, visiting the doctor, a pane of glass
