Where are you when your best ideas strike? I'm amazed at how many of my good ideas (not just having to do with a story) come while I'm sleeping. Is it because I'm relaxed that inspiration hits?
Once in awhile I'll get a good idea in the shower, or while I'm exercising. Rarely though, will epiphany strike while I'm cleaning or doing dishes. Never do they come while I'm staring at a blank computer screen. What about you?
Do you have a time or a place that your best ideas make an appearance? And what do you think it is about that place that triggers your brilliant thoughts?
