I once text someone an incredibly camp made up word (accidentally and totally out of character I may add). I then wrote a poem about it.

Truly, anything can strike the inspiration. You just have to open you mind and listen to your instincts. Nothing is stupid, especially when you consider the on-the-spot technique of writing down whatever comes out of your head. You may even edit the whole damn thing later on. I often cut the lines that inspired a piece of writing in order to follow a totally different, yet better train of thought that derailed the first one.

Just trust your mind. It's a curious thing. It'll work for you if you let it.
