How do stories come to you?

I am endlessly fascinated by the origins of stories – single scenes, sounds or sensations that inspire a narrative – like seeds that sprout or grains of sand around which a pearl forms in a shell. :seedling: :shell:

How did the piece you are currently working on come into being?

Was it triggered by a picture, a character, a line from a song? :musical_note:

Are there characters hanging around somewhere in your head waiting for a plot they can experience? Or plot ideas in want of characters that bring them to life? :dancer:
