Where do stories come from?

I’ve heard fiction writers say they don’t know where they get their ideas.

A friend — Kristen Oakley — just published her first book, a mystery, using her experiences with homeschooling as a starting point. My first full-length play — set in an indeterminate future — grew out of a land use study I read at work.

Stories can come from anywhere — even a rotten chip of wood — if you’re listening.
