Here is what I do to find ideas:
* Pay attention - ideas are everywhere
* Read like crazy
* Surf the internet
* Listen as people talk
* Ask questions
* Watch TV and Movies
* Go to live performances
* Visit museums and art exhibits
* Do something artistic -draw, sketch, paint, write, act
The truth is ideas are all around us, you just have to look for them and be open to them when they come your way. Make sure you have a way to write them down and catalog them so you can access them later.
