  1. Dreams. My best ideas come apparently out of nowhere through dreams. Long ago, I adopted the oft-prescribed practice of keeping a notebook at my bedside in which to record dreams while they are fresh. Even if the ideas never evolve into a novel, I think the excercise is very helpful in developing the ‘imaginative’ side of the brain – if that’s left or right, I don’t remember – and recording dreams is sort of like blind contour drawing for writers.
