    I have a notebook of lyrics, sayings, concepts, ideas, etc that I refer back to when writers block sets in.

    If it's lyrical, songwriting software that suggests lyrics many times inspires me with new ideas.

    Maybe work on a cover. I like to take existing songs by groups / people I enjoy and put a twist on them. Convert a song you like from 4/4 to 3/4. Changeup the rhythm pattern or something. Sing a soft song aggressively, whatever. Just butchering something someone else has done opens up your creativity.

    I have found that this works a lot for me. Seeing how a professionally-done song really inspires me to create something like. I almost always feel the need to create something after dissecting a piece of music.
