So I twist it (still with the lemon metaphor) into something I can use.
For example, I was typing the phrase, her clitoris, but my fingers typed herclitoris.
Okay, is it just me or does that sound like a heroine from a Greek myth?
So then I start spinning. Herclitoris (pronounced Her-CLIH-to-REES) is a follower of Athena and vows to be pure, until she meets time traveler Dirk Thunderthighs, who must visit the Oracle at Delphi to get home, needs a guide and coaxes (heh) Herclitoris into the job. Much attraction ensues.
Not all my creative surges come this way, but a fair portion do.
