If you’re a writer chances are you’ve been asked where you get your story ideas from.
A simple question that’s not so easy to answer; at least not in a way they would be able to understand, or even be satisfied with.
So, what do you do?
Should you spin a wild tale about the crazy ways you get your ideas from (drug-induced dreams, or by stumbling around in one of your sleep-walking misadventures, or going under-cover with that long-lost relative of yours who’s just happens to be an agent in the CIA)?
Sounds gloriously romantic, eh? I mean, we’re storytellers so why can’t we, you know, tweak the truth a little bit?
What would you do then?
