How do writers find their ideas?

I'm looking for book recommendations that deal with (fully or partially) methods writers use to find interesting, fresh subjects and ideas for stories.

By stories I mean non-fiction magazine or newspaper-style articles. I'm not interested in the actual writing process, but the various methods that writers use to find unique subjects and topics and angles to write about.
Failing that, articles (instead of books) dealing with this subject would work too.
If even that doesn't exist, could you tell me, dear writer, your own method for finding interesting stories to write about?
