Where does your story ideas come from? Stephenie Meyers said the idea for Twilight came to her in a dream. J.K. Rowling claims the idea for Harry Potter popped into her head during a train ride. I know that my idea for The Pinching Wars came from an offhand comment one of my co-workers made one day about his child's school.
I know that writers and all artists have a greater than average imagination but what do you think sets it off? When an idea pops into your head what makes you pursue it and shape it into a story? Where did your last idea come from? Please let me know in the comments section, I am fascinated by this!
