If you need inspiration, try these tips from poet and visual artist Helen Ivory.
Be as literal or as imaginative as you want to be.
Set a timer, and write for ten minutes. Try not to overthink what you are writing.
Try making short sentences or lists of words, not worrying how they connect.
Now read back. Are there any word combinations that you can develop?
