Fun for Friday: Where Do You Get Your Ideas?

Sometimes, it’s not about finding a source for specific ideas, but much more about finding things that will give you a wealth of different ideas.

Two blog posts I’ve found that address this topic well include Brandon Andersen’s 7 Sources for Story Ideas and M.B. Keen’s 9 Ultimate Sources for Writing Ideas. Though there is some overlap between these two posts on the sources, they both present interesting ways to use those sources for story inspiration and ideas. And while some of the ideas may not be as easy to try while folks are social distancing at various levels, there are plenty of internal or “from the comfort of your own home” ideas on both lists!
