“Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any.” — Orson Scott

Back to the quote. It’s not common to hear writers or creators rant about lacking ideas.
The debate about ideas is a topic that will never go dry.
Everywhere around the globe, writers are constantly searching for ideas to create stories or pieces that will be appreciated by their audience.
Relatable stories weave from the ability of writers to understand what it entails to weave them.
This can only come from fresh cut ideas that people are already used to.
And where the heck can one find those ideas?
You too should have been looking for ideas to fuel some projects in your life right now.
How come we lack ideas at some point only to be flooded with them later on.
What happened that turned them off in the first place?
Generating story ideas should be a work over for you as a creative, but is it? Really?
Even the beginning quote rates good writers as the ones that nail 5-6 ideas per day whereas there are a thousand offered to us daily.
Nature has already endowed us, it’s left for us to take them.
Anyway, what I would love to hammer on today that will be beneficial to you when you need to generate ideas for your project will be something you’ve probably overlooked, a system.
And this is what the how to generate story ideas requires from you, that you create a system to help you wield stories.
Oh, what’s all these systems talk about?
Sure! Systems rock!
And they work.
Many experts will attest to this.
Systems tackle inherent issues in a systematic way.
Generating a system can help you identify triggers that carry story potentials.
Some have eyes but cannot see.
To be able to identify ideas each time you encounter one is a skill that can be cultivated when you have a system for generating those ideas.
More about generating these ideas is discussed in easy-to-digest headings in the ebook.
