then, when i need riffs or whatever i just open that folder and look what i can find.
the next step is to create the music around it - i also do this by programming midi (with the assistance of my guitar and keyboard) and slowly i put a song together.
then i do the same thing as schmange said with the lyrics - only "blahblah"-improvisation and then i (or someone else) come up with some lyrics. and then off to studio ;)
