    Sometimes I just listen to music and it comes to me naturally that way.

    You really should be more careful and not risk hitting people in their eyes with carlessly thrown darts.

    That sounds like a really excellent idea. There's no greater source of inspiration I can think of, than music.

    I looked for my character growth. Which first-order events did I need to make happen to get these guys from point A to point B in their minds?

    Once I had the events, I asked for second-order events that set these first-order events in motion (political/worldbuilding dimension, caused by secondary/tertiary characters). Which additional players needed to be on the stage at each turning point? And then I searched for a setting that fulfilled all of these answers at each point in the first-order timeline.

    All else is curlicue.
