As an author, there’s nothing I love more than to create new, fantastic worlds from nothing. Well, almost nothing, most of stories in the world came from a tiny seed of thought. Whether it’s a scene playing out like a movie in your head (me) or just something that comes pouring out of you while your doing something else (also me), these ideas implant themselves into your mind and with careful nurturing, become the stories that we all know and love.
But that’s only one way.
The other way is not as pleasant. Some seeds implant but never sprout for one reason or another. Sometimes the only way to get them to do anything is through a complete and vicious destruction of everything around it. Now I know some people may balk at this idea but it’s the truth. Take was the ever talented Ms. Rowling said in her video here.
So plant your seeds whenever you can, in the best conditions and in the worst. You never know just what will become of them.
