Don't take this wrong, but I can't help but notice that your first posts here have been asking other people for ideas for a story. This is the opposite of what being a writer is about.
Most writers I know carry a pad of paper and a pen, or use a voice recorder on their phone, to write down story ideas, because we get ideas for our stories 24/7 and we can't turn it off. I'll see something in the grocery store or hear someone talking at the coffee shop and get an idea for my world. I keep a notepad by my bed because I got tired of waking up with ideas only to go back to sleep and forget them.
If you don't have stories falling out of your ears, writing fiction -- especially fantasy -- is likely not your bag. It's hard enough when you have too many ideas; I can't imagine doing it with none. If you don't have stories or worlds inside you clawing to get out, don't put yourself through this. Writing sucks. Being a writer is painful, awful, headache-inducing, exhausting work that will cripple you with self-doubt and drive you to a small room where you self-medicate and talk to imaginary people. Further, promoting and marketing a book makes your soul all sticky, and the money is comparatively shit. I've got 20 years into researching and building my series and it will take me five more to finish it now that the first book is done. If I made a million dollars off of it, that's about $20 an hour for my time. You can make that digging ditches. Most of us will never make our production costs back. This is the world's stupidest side-hustle.
There's no reason that you can't write, and I'm not telling you you can't -- I'm not the gatekeeper of the craft -- but the story is the thing. Everything revolves around your story. If you don't have more stories, and more unique and new ideas, than you know what to do with, get out while you can. Run. Save yourself. Christ, I would.
We do this because we have to; because the stories will haunt us and make us insane if we don't write them down and blow on the sparks and make them come to life so that they can run around outside our heads. We have to get them out to make room for the new ones.
If you're in a rut or a dry spell, that's different; go to the library, check out a bag full of books, and lock yourself in a room for a week until you come up with something cool. Books are free. But ideas are priceless.
EDIT: If you're doing NanoWriMo, hell, knock yourself out.
I just need some good ways to come up with unique races. Also if you have any examples of really cool unique races I would love to hear about them.
I'm not asking people for their ideas, what I am asking for is helpful ways to come up with ideas. I can see where you would make that mistake, but trust me, taking others ideas are the furthest from what I am trying to do. I like the fact that you gave me examples of ways to come up with ideas, because that was what I was asking for in the first place.
