Journals can be a source for inspiration, like that weird name you encountered. Something embarrassing can become something funny, as long as you don’t implicate anyone. Strange dreams can become strange stories or the inspiration for a poem.

Just because you spend most of your writing time weaving together short stories doesn’t mean you can’t try your hand at a poem or two every now and then.
