Once, when no one was looking...
It's what I do in the middle of the night.

Write about the horizon
It's Saturday afternoon; you're not at home.
Write about a bed.
Write about a time you found out about something you weren't supposed to know.
"It was noon, and nothing was concluded."
Remember a sound.
Look out your window - write what you see.
Write about something you bought mail-order.
In the meantime...
Write a love letter. To anyone.
Write about leaving.
Describe the contents of someone's closet.
Write about a used car.
