You need to input as much information as you put out. All of the best writers recommend reading a lot in order to write well. The same applies to music, however listening to music might work against you. You don’t want to get someone else’s melody stuck in your head while trying to write your own, so try a non-musical form of media. Read a book or watch a movie. You’ll find plenty of new story ideas or inspiration by consuming new information regularly.
