Ideas Can Come From Many Places

These are the places I get most of my ideas from when it comes to writing.

Everyday Things

There are a billion things in the world. We as writers should never be stuck for ideas for things to write about.

There are many things I myself draw inspiration and below I’m going to list a few of them. These are the sources that I use the most, a lot of the time I don’t even realize that its happening until I start writing.

Television - I’ve written a lot of articles about stuff I’ve seen on Television, especially real life stuff. It opens up a world of stuff to write about. Television also helps me come up with ideas for fiction as well as writing my articles. A lot of the time I’m writing about something while I’m watching the so-called idiot box.

Reading - I read as almost as most as I write. I grew up reading point horror and goosebumps, this made me want to become a horror writer. Some great horror fiction came out in the 90’s.

Internet - There are endless amounts of information and ideas we can get from the web. I probably wouldn’t write as much as I do if it wasn’t for the web. On the rare occasion I do get stuck for something to write ten minutes browsing online usually does the trick and before I know it I’ve got twenty odd ideas running through my head.

Dreams - This might sounds unusual but it has worked for me, maybe possible I often have very strange twisted dreams. Your mind can create some amazing stories while you sleep.

I think that the problem for many writers, if not for most, Soaraya, is not coming up with ideas of things to write about, but deciding which of those ideas to write about. At least that is the problem I find myself frequently facing and because I face that problem frequently, I, as a rule have a dozen or more articles in the works at any given time.
