Need Ideas? Listen!
This Playlist gives you a few ideas for finding new story (or poem) ideas by opening up your ears and listening in new ways.
Have you ever heard a piece of a conversation on the sidewalk or in a hallway and thought... what were they talking about?
All responses to Snippets
One of the best ways to get an idea going, is to juxtapose two (or more) things that you might not always think about as going side-by-side. This XP will help you find some outside-the-box combinations to get your ideas going.

Similar to the first XP, this one invites you to do a little bit of eavesdropping. This time, we'll be on the lookout for phone-talkers. You never know what you're going to hear!

In the Distance
Often, we hear sounds that we can't readily identify. Sometimes, our imaginations will try to piece together what we were hearing--but it can be really hard, impossible even, to know whether we were right. In this XP, that doesn't matter! Being wrong is where the fun begins.

Sometimes, great ideas can sprout from other pieces of art. Think about a song or a specific lyric that rings true for you. Use it as a jumping off point.
