A new story idea every single day.
Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.
Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#193: Dear Santa
It's Christmas morning and there's a man who's sat alone in his living room in the dark. The Christmas tree lights are blinking away and he's writing on his computer. He's writing his suicide note in the form of a letter to Santa.
But as he goes upstairs to tie to belt around his throat he hears something coming from downstairs. He follows it down and finds an elvish being searching through his cupboards for some sort of Orange Juice.
"Hello?" the man says.
"Oh ... hello there," replies Dot Flux.
(I'm definitely going to write a much larger novel around Dot Flux at some point and I'm just looking for ways to open the story).
