Hands' down 's STORYSTORM is a fabulous resource. Also boredom and being outside.

My children’s artwork constantly inspires me. The proportions in their drawings always give me a clue as to what they consider most vital or interesting or funny. I just love their POV!

#2, Hate to be the MOTO but has helped me learn more the craft as opposed to just having an idea.

A2: Most of my ideas come to me when I'm driving or walking. The driving thing is ridiculous because I have to keep repeating the idea out loud, over and over, until I can pull over and write it down.

Driving helps me too! But it has to be a long drive and an endless road, bc then it's just me and my ideas. Being the passenger helps too.

And lastly, I get a lot of ideas from random you tube videos about weird animals (though I haven't actually written a single animal story yet)!

Youtube's 1 of my go-to sources. I look up inspirational videos, animal videos, odd videos, motivational speeches, etc. It's really can be a one-stop source of inspiration. Ever find yourself going down the rabbit hole of really weird videos and wonder how you got there?

That actually sounds brilliant. So, everytime my family suggest an idea, it's basically potential gold? : P But seriously, this is an interesting way to flip things and shake up the process while creating a potentially interesting result (w/out expecting much from it).

One of the assignments in the PB Intensive I did was to write an unpublishable picture book.
