Write about yourself from someone else's view. How do you think your mother sees you? Your father? Your high school teachers? Your best friend from elementary school? Your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife? Your dog? God? Your mail carrier? Your boss? Your ex? Your child?

Write about yourself from more than one perspective. Do they all see the same version of you?

Do you know when your character's birthday is? Did anything else interesting happen on that day? In that year? Do you know your character's astrological sign? Choose a date and see if anything unusual happened. Then write about how those events may or may not have affected your character.

Choose a strange dream you've had recently or repeatedly and craft a story around it. If you don't remember your own dreams, ask a friend for one or browse an online dream interpreter for inspiration.
