Where Ideas Come From

One author talks about where she gets her ideas.

I actually don't mind telling people where I get mine, although the answers sometimes make them blink:
* science news
* world news
* people who piss me off, that I want to torture or murder in effigy
* people who live in other worlds and like to tell stories
* things I see in my yard
* the Universe wants something talked about and pesters me until I write about it
* TV shows, movies, or stories that go right up to something interesting and then stop short
* someone says "You can't X" and I say, "Oh yeah?  Watch me!" and poke them in the eye with pencils
* I notice a gap that needs filling
