Thinking fluently is a key quality of a creative thinker. One way to force yourself to think fluently is to impose a quota upon yourself. Set a time limit and a goal for a certain number of ideas, and then start writing down every idea that comes to mind. The initial ideas will usually be less interesting than the later ones because all of the obvious concepts are right at the surface of your consciousness. If you go long enough to get through the obvious concepts, you will have much better results. For this reason, you should set your quota high and keep writing down your ideas until the time limit expires.
