Sometimes inspiration can be found in otherworldly or non-human creatures. A sparkling vampire in a dream kicked off Stephenie's Meyer's Twilight Saga. Whether you like the books or not is irrelevant. [Haven't read them yet. I know. I'll get there. And I plan to do blogs posts about them. So look out for that.] She went with her spark of creativity and made it work for her, and that's something to emulate: going with inspiration when you find it.
Write from the point of view of something non-human. This can mean a werewolf, a faery, an animal, an angel, a doll or even a pen. Write at least 500 words or enough to get a feel for and adequately express a new voice. Getting into a non-human mindset and writing from that POV will help you think outside the box with tone, dialogue, actions, motivation, needs, etc. When your narrator is not confined to human conventions, morality, the laws of physics, your imagination can run wild. Go for it!
