Neil Gaiman Explains Where He Gets Story Ideas

Neil Gaiman in black leather jacketOne of my favorite writers is Neil Gaiman. He has an imagination that creates some fantastical, out of this world stories and the writing talent, skill, and ability to make those stories believable.

In this short four minute video, Mr. Gaiman reveals where he gets his story ideas from. It’s not from the Idea of the Month club, as one writer answered, or a little store in Schenectady, NY, as Harlan Ellison claims.

You might be surprised.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
