In this media saturated age, most people have favorite icons, characters or graphics, Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, horses (especially, horses galloping with the wind whipping their mane), smiley faces, a particular type of flower, lotus, roses, orchids, iris, etc. . Select one of your favorites and brainstorm a list of words and ideas which you associate with it. Select a few items and free write for a five minutes--no stopping and see what ideas spin from it. Your free writing can be stream of concious, use the words from your list to make a series of connected or disconnected sentences, etc. Don't self-censor. Just write.
