What inspires you?
What kinds of things inspire your stories? Movies? Books? Real Life? All of the above? Other? I'm going through what I call a tribute stage. I've got a sci-fi'd testament to 'Night of the Living Dead' half written, waiting for the zombie-muse to show back up and my current WIP is a twist on what some have called the first fully realized science fiction story ever. Care to take a guess? Ah, well, soon to appear at a writing crit site near you. My point is, I'm inspired by other works. Movies and books, mostly, although the occasional newspaper headline will send plot bunnies hopping through my brain. How about you?
