Where Do Your Ideas Come From?
I got the idea for my current WIP by watching the series Dexter- it’s great by the way- if you’ve never seen it, put it on your list! Michael C. Hall is brilliant.
Funny thing is- it only jolted something in me-my WIP doesn’t actually have anything to do with the story or character. But- It got me writing, and that was a wonderful thing.
I form ideas from lots of places; conversations I hear, movies I’ve seen, anything really. Sometimes they just pop in my mind as an amalgam of different experiences I’ve had.
I even pick up ideas from other books- not that I use them specifically- but it may spark something I didn’t think of.
So. I’m curious… where do you get your ideas?
