I was in chat with Cheka_Man tonight and he mentioned an idea of his. He literally only said one or two lines at most.
Which instantly set my creativity on overdrive. Now after finishing up there, and giving the guy a trove of idea-treasure. I have that 'I wish I'd thought of it' moment.
It was his idea, but I want to write it! I shall now have to meekly ask if I can work on it together with him.
All it took was a couple of sentences from him, and it didn't take much at all for an entire history, practices, etc everything really to spring up in my mind; fully formed.
-Random 'I just really needed to get that out of me rant over.
So, my fellow Strolenati. You've no doubt all found yourselves in a similar situation at one point or another. How did you handle it? What was it like? More importantly; what do I do now!? He threw the idea out there and now I'm wide awake still pouring forth ideas! Wanting to write! Yet not wanting to take his idea!
