Writing Books/IDEAS


Where or how do you get ideas for storys? Do you have any brainstorming techniques?

From everywhere, including reading and brainstorming.  Brainstorm by listing everything that comes to mind first, then allow your list to cool off before it is edited.  Or start with one word and draw lines from it, writing an an associated word at the end of each and keep branching out.  There is no one best way to get ideas.  You have to keep experimenting until you find the one that works for you.
