The moving finger writes, and having writ, continues to write.

I’ve heard that one of the questions published authors most hate to be asked is where they get their ideas. To them, the talented ones, the question is silly–they have more ideas than they can possibly put to paper. But the rest of us have to struggle to find an idea that will capture out time and attention for the months and years it will take to write the book, to rewrite it and rewrite it again.

So, for us idea-challenged writers, where do stories come from? They don’t come from anywhere. They have to be created and nurtured and grown in the hopes that someday they will take shape. Beyond that, the most important thing is to write.

After all, whether published or unpublished, a writer writes. Always.
