Is this not half the battle, coming up with new ideas (plots or themes)? The other half is the manner of expression, whether you call this style or construction. Ideas require imagination, and prolific writers (Stephen King or Charles Dickens) seem to have an unlimited fountain of ideas which they can tap. Let your dreams be your guide. Don't ignore precognition, either. King's novel, Misery, preceded his debilitating accident (1990) by at least three years. Although the truck that hit him was not evil like Christine (1983), there are strange connections with that book, too. Some need a life experience to write a book. Others can reach into the future and bring back an experience. Think of yourself as a reporter or observer. Use that wonderful brain of yours to build a library of events, both conscious and subconscious, and then twist it so it can become the basis of a story.
