I've been going over my story for a while now, developing ideas of my own, but I've hit a snag. I find that I see other ideas elsewhere which I would quite like to use - changing them of course and doing them in my own way - but I feel like I should be using mostly my own ideas. Since they are a lot smaller in number compared to the ones I see elsewhere though... Hopefully you can see what I'm getting at. Which brings up the title of this thread; how do you get your ideas, and from where? Mainly, do you mostly use those you came up with yourself, or do you take them from other sources and invert/avert them and generally put your own spin on them.
