4. Do most of your story ideas come from your own life, stories you read about, a flash of an idea? What?
They come from everywhere. Lately I've been writing for a lot of anthologies so calls for submission are sparking many of my new story ideas.
P.A. I would say an overheard sentence or two. The more closely my story follows a real incident, the more trouble I have slipping into it. I try hard to find a way to make it mine when I can't pass something true up.
