It honestly depends. I’ve found stories or catalysts for stories in everything from a plain old brainstorming session at my desk to a museum exhibit in another country. But largely I ruminate on what I love and what I don’t love – how can I embrace the former and shift the latter? And this is a tactic from my screenwriting education, but I like to distill stories into easy, pitchable parts. Something I can say that another person would automatically get. It’s this meets that. For example, for Red Queen, I say it’s Game of Thrones meets X-Men meets Hunger Games. That usually works best, and quickly, to communicate what the story is to potential audience.
