It's that vacation time of year. Put yourself (or that of a character in your novel or current short story, or any character about whom you've considered writing) in an extremely relaxing position: on the beach, on the back porch, in a hammock, or in any other place your consider to be relaxing. Let your character go into a daydream state, a reverie, and write the thoughts. Begin with physical description of the place, go into the reverie, and then-- follow wherever it leads. Try to remain true to your character's voice.
