Tag Archives: where ideas come from

When and where do I get ideas? The answer is revealed!

Recently, I was asked “When and where do you find you get most of your inspiration and ideas for stories?”

That could have such a quick and simple answer like – teatime in the kitchen or shopping in Ikea – but it really isn’t as simple as that.

I mentioned before that I think ideas are living things, like viruses, they are looking to “get you” to make their idea come true. If you are not the right person, then they fly away to look for someone else – sometimes they even leave you feeling lost and empty – bereft – and sometimes jealous or angry when you see someone else have success with the same idea!

In this video I explain where and when I get ideas and what I do about them when they come knocking on the door!
