So, I'm curious. Where do you get your ideas for stories from? Because, I get my main story ideas by myself, then I lay it out to my best friend and she tells me what she thinks, and gives me any ideas that she thinks would go well with the story. I do the same for her (sometimes, we both like an idea, so we end up writing the story together - our styles are different, but they match, and they usually work well together). I know that a lot of people are uncomfortable with sharing their ideas with others at first, or like coming up with everything by themselves, and I'm curious as to what you do. Sometimes, I like my friend's idea better than one of mine, so I change/alter it, or, say, she points out that a name doesn't sound right and suggests a new one. So, yeah. Do you suck your own noggin' dry for ideas, or take up others'?
