Current news is often an inspiration and I'm always on the lookout for strange and unusual articles. Conspiracy theories are another big source...often not for the theories themselves, but for their method of spreading, of propagating through the public consciousness. You can barely enter a search in google without tripping over one these days.

Here's the weird one though--I have a playlist on Spotify where I've collected over 100 songs which I used to listen to back in the late 1970s and early 1980s when I was creating Dungeons & Dragons adventures to run my hapless friends through. It's like a bizarre Pavlov's Response tap directly into my creative brain. Turn it on and instant creativity...for me. Your mileage may vary ;)

The list is public, but so far not a single person has ever followed it, except me -- could be because it's name is dnd rock
I dunno. Be warned though! The song list contains songs by Black Sabbath, which made one of my young friends tell me "I can't hang out over here anymore because you listen to that devil music." True story. And this in heathenist Southern California. (less)
