We asked on Twitter, you answered!
How do stories come to you? Do you visualise them or do you actually hear the words?

@WomenWriters one story started w/single line: “Damn, I want a cigarette & I don’t even smoke.”

@WomenWriters I see what’s happening, hear the words, feel what my characters are feeling , think what they’re thinking. Like method acting.

@WomenWriters I hear the main character’s dialogue & go from there

@WomenWriters Every time I start forming a story, my mind automatically starts wondering as to which book that is from. I stop there.

@WomenWriters Settings come to me in 3D pictures, dialogue like actors' improvisation sessions – one character starts and the others follow.

@WomenWriters Always the dialogue first, then everything else just builds around that like scenes from a movie or a play.

@WomenWriters Overheard dialogue. A road sign. An image from who-knows-where. I see it. And I hear the characters. They say what they want.
