Typically I get my ideas from those around me or from that which is within me. Crappy, unhelpful answer? Yeah...let's see if I can do a little better. With varied interests I haunt forums, read voraciously, ponder imponderables, notice the quirks of others, explain away the quirks of myself and, generally, try and claw out a story line that may prove uplifting and informative to others. OK...perhaps uplifting and informative is a reach and a blatant misrepresentation of my work. I shall stand by it until the lawyers file the appropriate injunctions against me to stop.
