Nina -- I come up with ideas all over the place, both the big idea for the story and a the small twists. For example in the novella I just finished, I read the first bit of mine to the group in Spokane and Jillian read the first bits of hers. I have a little girl in mine, Jillian has a slightly older boy in hers. Someones suggested we do a book about the two kids (when they are adults). I set up such a romance in the epilogue of my novella. I probably wouldn't have done it without that suggestions so that was the trigger for that plot twist.
