Where do ideas come from? That’s a good question.

Ideas can come from anywhere and we mean anywhere but while surfing the web we came across a beautiful and well-written post by Kathryn Graves, a writer and speaker,  on where she believes her story inspiration comes from.

Here’s an excerpt:

How is dreaming and creative writing connected?

The clock by my bed read 3:30 a.m. when I jerked awake. I fought to untangle my legs from the sheets while trying to clear the fog from my brain. Why did I wake up? I wondered. I shuffled into the kitchen to make a cup of hot tea and as I inhaled the fragrant steam, a story formed in my mind.

Grabbing a pen and notebook, I settled into my favorite comfy chair and watched the story appear on the paper. My hand was doing the writing, but the words flowed from an inner place in my mind that I didn’t realize was even there.

Most writers have experienced something similar. I wanted to know how the process works, so I did a bit of research. I discovered that dreaming is a known quantity in the creative writing process.
