While other writers may have muses, I have only my foggy brain and killer wit to inspire me. And probably not the latter either. I'm a writer; I make things up and think I'm funny.
So, this foggy brain o' mine is not exactly good at coming up with great ideas at a moment's notice. But thanks to my Spec-Fic critique group's

So I flip through it, having no memory of buying it, and a lightbulb goes on! Heeey, I write Speculative Fiction; I should write a short story on every topic in that book. Perhaps in alphabetical order?
It beats standing on street corners and panhandling for ideas, or trying to win the idea lottery.
I think I'm going to do it. I love giving myself challenges that make me pull my hair out. I know how to have fun!
What about you? If you write, how do you come up with ideas one after another?
