Having reached the age where I have to pay attention to what I do and what I eat I have recently modified my diet. The results of this modification seems to be an increase in creativity. Now that is not a bad thing. In fact it is good but troublesome. I have numerous story ideas running through my head when I need to be concentrating on the novel "Meltdown" which I am co-authoring with Barbara M. Hodges.
I have never suffered from a lack of story ideas; they seem to come easy to me. Some are based on past experiences, and some come from observed situations. Having a heavy background in action related events certainly helps.
