A question for Hope Davies

A question for Hope Davies

Q: How do you generate story ideas, and how soon do you act on them?

A: My stories tend to come from things that have intrigued or bothered me — things I want to explore my own perspectives on, clarified by the lense of, usually, speculative fiction. When I get an idea, I tend to act on it fairly quickly, even if acting on it just means jotting down a sentence or a paragraph in a google doc. It tends to take much longer to work itself into an actual story though, and those early notes rarely bear much of a resemblance to the idea I end up committing to.
