Inspiration comes from many places...things I've read, dreams, conversations overheard. Sometimes the thoughts come pouring in, other times they need to percolate in the back of my brain for a while and then, in quiet moments, they come together. Sometimes that happens at my keyboard, but other it might just as well be when I'm driving somewhere or walking the dogs. Times when my mind is distracted by simple things seem to free up creativity. I think every author is different, but I also think that the 'mindless' tasks in our lives (even washing dishes and doing laundry!) often let us open up our minds to the stories within.
