In 2002, I was living with Omoizele Okoawo, and a third...ummm...challenging roommate. Said roommate was also a writer, and in a rut. Omoizele sat him down, in a room where I was already sitting, and explained that his recent writing had been ethereal, and hard to follow. Omoizele suggested that he didn't need to stop his ethereal work, but he needed to ground it with something. Start with something real and necessary, and then build to the more fanciful.
His suggested starting point was "All I need is a room", which may have been his early hint that the roommate needed to move out.
I don't remember whether or not the roommate used the prompt, but I did, and ended up with one of my favorite poems from that era of my writing.
I structured the poem so that the thesis of each stanza was "what I need" which would branch out to a series of things I wanted.
