STORY IDEA #204: Where do ideas come from?

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#204: Every time a man goes to sleep he wakes up to find a fully written, literary award-winning, typed manuscript on his bedside table. It says it’s written by him but he has no memory of it.

He publishes it all to great success and becomes a household name ... but he knows ... he knows.

We open the story far into the future where he's on TV, trying to explain where his stories come from.
"They come from my dreams," he bawls, "my dreams!"
