A writer usually has enough ideas, IMO; the trick is to be aware of how much you can immediately draw upon.

Trying hard to get ideas can make you miss the most important ones. On the other hand, trying hard to gather specific kinds of ideas is more along the lines of research.

This is very good advice and the funny part is that I already knew all this but when there is a page about them I feel better knowing that I am not the only one who thought this up. In the end persistence is the only way to keep going . Thank you!

There are many options out there To generate an idea.You need just implement it.For this, You have to give attention for getting the idea.So. Pay your attention to the major science blogsites and Universities to see what people are cooking up at the moment.Thus, you can get the actual idea from there.
