When you examine what you've written, you may find a topic you'd like to write about or an experience for one of your characters. Does the writing reflect a theme you frequently write about or one you'd like to explore?
Usually I do this exercise from a main character's point of view, and in the process gain insight about the character's background and motivations. Even when the exercise doesn't relate directly to the scene I'm working on, it often helps me understand where the action will go.
