Reaching Outside The Box
Lacking a little in the inspiration department? Try reaching out to a genre you don't normally write in. If you mostly write romance, try delving into horror. If you normally write erotica, try your hand at nonfiction. If you are a poet, try to write a short adventure story. You don't have to worry about it being good, that will only make it harder. The purpose is to go outside your comfort zone a bit and force your creativity to start up. If you want, you can keep it to yourself, or you can share it with others to get some feedback. Who knows, you may even find you like it!
