Where DO You Get Your Ideas?

Where Do You Get Your Ideas

‘Where do you get your ideas?’ is a question a writer hears often. 

No matter what genre your writing takes, the story whether fiction or nonfiction all begins with a kernel of an idea. Every author interview contains this question in some disguised form. It seems that it’s a common belief that writers eventually run out of ideas. These readers evidently don’t read Stephen King, Diana Gabaldon, or Louise Penny.

But alas, new writers often do run out of ideas or get the dreaded writer’s block. I know I did.
