    My stories just pop in my head. any time any where. i have to clean or workout if i have a hard time with writing a book. that’s why i have to keep paper and pen with me at all times lol.

    My ideas come from personal experiences then I reinvent them to the way I could imagine them to turn out.A little bit of added magic makes the story more interesting and perhaps a little unrealistic but I like fairytales.

  3. Story concepts come in a flash, maybe as a tagline idea. Then I plot. When I actually get into writing the story, I envision the scene. When the words begin, that’s when I can sit down and write. (Sometimes I can sit down and write before that, but it goes best if the words flow first.)

    Mine sometimes come from dreams. Scenes played out. Voices heard. The emotions felt.

  5. For me, it always starts with a name. The name creates a face and figure, and a character comes in to fill it. After that, the plot expands from the character’s unique desires and challenges.
