✒️ Writers’ Wisdom ~ Where Do Your Story Ideas Originate?

“My stories run up and bite me on the leg – I respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite. When I finish, the idea lets go and runs off.”

~ Ray Bradbury

    1. Thank you for your comments, Terveen. Re: my story ideas, I think of a character and then I literally ask the character, “Let me in on what’s going on.” I sit down at my laptop and it is as if the character were dictating to me. I never know where the story is going or how the character is going to get to wherever he/she is going. I am as surprised as the character. LOL Have a great day. Smile often and shine on! Ray

      1. This is a great approach. Too much planning just ruins the creative flavor. But everyone has their own writing system. 🙂

      2. Yes, each writer has to listen to his/her own muse and discover his/her unique writing path. It’s there waiting to be discovered. Thanks for the insight. Ray
