Where do you get your ideas from? ( Or – from where do you get your ideas?) I began to think about this as I settled on a subject for my next short story.
All my books had news items as the trigger .Lane’s End had the treatment of people with learning difficulties, Un-Stable Lane had the floods, The Third Lane had soldiers coming back from the war, Never Run Away had redundancy and Never Pretend had crime and the use of local news TV stations.It is only A Lesson for the Teacher that is not relevant today because that has echoes of my past.
It is quite likely I may go quiet for a few days now I have some inspiration. I wrote a poem but it needs editing before I enter it for a competition.
