    Sources of what you adapt

    I resisted calling this the idea thread because of the old joke. The one that writers refuse to say where they got theirs from and say they buy it from schenadecty (asimov). Various famous writers reply when asked annoyed where do you get your ideas. I don't believe I need to say what they...

    Skill, Inspiration, Motivation or Accident; Why do you write Non-Fiction?

    Why do you write Non-Fiction? While in my career, writing was just one part of my responsibilities. I wrote company newsletters, press releases, report summaries, website information pages, user manuals and more. But, as a prematurely retired person, I decided to finish one of my novels...

    How to gain Inspiration, making money and not caring about being popular

    MIdnight Courage

    ` I love the wee and trippy hours of an after-midnight when that glass slipper lays glistering aloof, in soft moonlight while weary dreamers poise inked quills to carve their thoughts onto pale parchment from a woozy head -- too early in the day to be about one's inescapable...

    Using your dreams

    I was just wondering how often people use their dreams/nightmares as inspiration for fiction-writing. Whenever I've really enjoyed (and actually remembered) a dream I've written down the outline of it, but when I've done so I've more often than not realised that it just wouldn't work. There's...
