“I make sure I never face a blank page.”
One method of writing (that works for me):
Make note of every dumb thought that occurs to you throughout the day.
Tomorrow morning, pick the thought you think
is the least dumb is the most interesting* and write more about it.
Repeat ad infinitum. (Or ad nauseam. You know, whatever works…)
Just write the thing down now, when it seizes you. You have the whole eternal afterwards to decide whether or not it's dumb.

* I edited this because sometimes the dumbest thought could be the most interesting thought and the one that gets you somewhere. “It’s a fine line between stupid and clever.”
