And where I get my ideas from? I honest to god, am not sure.
My writing process is usually started from me building up my characters, doing little dialogue prompts with them to get their own distinct voices down, and thinking up a story that revolves around them. In my opinion, you can have the most basic plot in the whole of existence, but you got a great character or more, you've got yourself a winning story.
So what inspired my story, The Raven In My Apartment, would have been Marcus, my main character, who was in turn inspired by a bored, blank looking man I saw on the bus. Dude looked disinterested in life, void of all emotions and had the perfect poker face. I didn't expect him to be so kind and give up his seat for a kid that was using crutches. So based Marcus off that.
For my story, Wet Sand, it was Milo. There was someone I always saw whenever I went out to town, and they were always playing guitar for money on the streets. I always put as much as I could whenever I did see them. They kinda were my inspiration for Milo, and I thought since it's close to summer, beach.
