I'm a big fan of doodling. It stimulates your creativity for your writing. I doodle whenever I'm stuck, and to take a break between projects.
If you need to be write every day, consider buying some visual arts notebooks (the ones with thick drawing paper) for some heavy daily doodling. Or use whatever comes to hand: paper you're recycling, the screen of your PDA (you can get Paint-type programs for both Palm and Win-CE handhelds); index cards etc.
I've been using Levenger's Concept Pads; they're brilliant, because the paper is luscious and thick, and they're a great size for BIG doodles. (I write project outlines on the back.)
Here are some other articles on the elegant, intriguing art of doodling:

* the scribble hypothesis (why your teachers were wrong to stop you scribbling away);
* Stream of consciousness painting (doodling with attitude.)
Discover the fascinating art of doodling for yourself. It will help your writing – and it's great fun too. :-)
