Ideas come from nowhere

There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers

Stephen King

In his book about ‘on writing’ he says that ideas just come out of nowhere, sometimes it’s two ideas put together

And our job is to recognise them when they do appear, not to go out looking for them

This is true not just In writing but in any idea we have

They say the best nights out are the random ones that just happened out of an idea not pre planned

My best posts (based on likes and my blog stats) are the ones that just sort of happened, where as my well thought out ones most of the time are greeted with nothing.

Ideas generally come when we least expect them, like in the shower or whilst driving (the amount of ideas I’ve had and forgotten whilst driving because I couldn’t write them down is frustrating)

Stop trying to be creative and just let the process happen

But when it does be ready to recognise and catch it

Like the guy who created the flaming hot cheetos he just happened to dip his cheetos into some chilli powder (I think) whilst on his day job

Random idea dudes quite rich now
