"Where do you get your ideas?"
I've heard this question not only as a writer, but frequently in my day-to-day life. However, it's usually phrased as "What the hell were you thinking?" I'd like to believe that this is a matter of someone or another simply appreciating my creativity, however, I doubt it. Afterall, my mouth spouts off a matter of phrases, thoughts, and the like before my brain has a chance to say "WHOA!"
And then there are times when I give my brain a chance to mull things over, and that's when it gets downright terrifying. Which means I'm either a genius, or demented...probably both.
