Sometimes I’m with family or friends and we start talking about something. I find some detail or some idea interesting and want to know more about it. When I know the direction that interests me, I start researching and that generates more ideas. Often I get my best ideas when I’m taking a break. I especially like cycling. When I get stuck and don’t know how to keep on with what I’m writing, it helps to take a quick walk down the road. As one of my writing teachers told me, “I walk to a certain tree and usually by the time I get there I have the idea I need.”

Most important of all: I ask the Lord to give me ideas. He does.
