Where do you get book/writing ideas?
Ideas for writing can come from anywhere: a book, a tv series, a walk, a painting class, or getting involved in a creative group.
The number one place I find ideas for writing happens while I’m consistently writing. With regular writing, the story stays in my mind, replaying in the background. It’s like a program running with the purpose of finding missing pieces to a puzzle. And it works, but only if I keep focused on the story that I am steadily working on. Working implies action. It is the action, which cultivates the energy necessary to spark ideas and find what the characters and story needs.
In a way it works like what Maya Angelou said, You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
