I don't know what the big deal is. Ideas? You can just go get them at The Idea Factory. Sure. Corner of "Yeah, I wish" and "What are YOU smoking?"
I'm often asked where I get my ideas from. As I'm sure many of you are. Bottom line: I'm a creative individual with an aptitude for writing. But isn't that just damn boring?
I'm a shareholder of The Idea Factory. I have a buy three get one free certificate.
I leave a couple of bucks under my pillow, and the Idea Fairy takes the dough and leaves me a thought or two.
I've had the creative part of my brain lobotomized. It sits on a jar on my desk. When I need an idea...I simply put a piece in my ear. Thus, a story is born. (I actually used this in a chat the other day. You could actually FEEL the silence through the screen. *snickering*)
I flip through my trusty dictionary and pick out an article, an adjective, and a noun. Pop them all together. And Presto!
I put every letter in the alphabet in the hat and start drawing them out until I make words.
I channel the spirit of Webster. Handy dude that he is.
The voices in my head guide me. They say it's better that I do what they want.
