Most stories start with the shiny new idea, the 'what if' that inspires us. I'm pretty lucky in that I never lack for ideas. Not only do I have all those I've found in the past and haven't had time to write but I also find brand new ones all the time.

But if, perchance, you have trouble finding new ideas here are some places I've discovered a few:
Newspaper or Magazine headlines
Maps of places you've never been to
Where do you find new ideas?
