“We tend to be most original when we have just been touched by strong emotion, be it happiness, sadness, or inspiration, from an inner or outer source. For example, when you experience something good or bad for the first time or feel renewed after a long talk with a friend, it’s like a well inside you opens up and deepens. Try to write when those feelings of strong emotion or inspiration are at the forefront; this is when you are at your most original. Notice what you are thinking and feeling, and write down anything that bubbles up from that well.”
