Just to express the stories and characters that emerge in my head when I'm bored.
Hm... do you daydream much? I hear that really helps. It helps me. But it can't be fantasizing, I mean a daydream that could potentially turn into a nightmare or uncomfortable, embarrassing or funny, etcetera. Allow those possibilities. That way you get the sense of realism. You can add some randomization, close your eyes and let the pictures emerge in front of you. You should begin to see flickers of random scenes. I'm not sure what they are yet, but I believe them to be jumbled snippets of your memories. It helps to be in a calm, quiet and possibly meditative state.
Some of these flickers of scenes can be unusual and thought-provoking. Certainly inspiring when you start piecing together a story from them.
