WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS?

“Where do you get your ideas?”  It’s a common question from wannabe creators.

When asked this question Dr. Seuss and Kurt Vonnegut gave these answers:

“This is the most asked question of any successful author. Most authors will not disclose their source for fear that other less successful authors will chisel in on their territory. However, I am willing to take a chance. I get all my ideas in Switzerland near the Forka Pass. There is a little town called Gletch, and two thousand feet up above Gletch there is a smaller hamlet called Uber Gletch. I go there on the fourth of August every summer to get my cuckoo clock repaired. While the cuckoo is in the hospital, I wander around and talk to the people in the streets. They are very strange people, and I get my ideas from them.”                                                 – Dr. Seuss

When someone asks me this question, I reply, “Everywhere!  Look around you.  Things surround you that once were, or still are, ideas.  Think how much fun it is playing with and mixing up these ideas!”
