PROMPT # 7: Watch your favorite movie. Afterwards, experiment on giving it different endings. If it's a romantic movie with a mushy happy-ending, why not re-write ending and say, have guy end up with other woman? Or if it's an action film, ask yourself what would happen if hero got killed. The thing here is you have to think of a different version for movie's ending.
Prompt # 8. Imagine you're walking in a mall and all of a sudden, a woman grabs you by hair and starts a catfight with you. What would you do? Would you fight back? If you're a man, think of what you'll do if another guy punched you on nose for no reason at all. Would you punch back? Describe "fight scene."
Prompt # 9. Recall last dream (or nightmare) you had. Describe dream in detail.
Prompt # 10. If you were an animal, what would would you be? Why?
Prompt # 11. When you were in gradeschool, what was your most hated subject? Why did you hate it? Do you still hate it? Why or why not? Did teacher have anything to do with it?
Prompt # 12. Put on your favorite CD or tape. What music comes out of it? When you listen to it, what do you feel? What comes into your mind?
I hope prompts I have created for you will help you get those words out of your head and onto paper.
