To both starting and long-time writers, how do y’all naturally get inspired with your plot ideas?
Whenever I try to start a story, for some reason it’s just natural to me to come up with the small details (that can be plotted much later) first. For example, when thinking of a magical system, I’ve already got the basic rules and even specific powers of certain characters. Problem is, I don’t have any clear plot at all to fit it to.
Does anyone else think like this too, or do your plots just come to you first?
