Total loss of ideas... I guess cranking out 30 short stories in 8 months takes it's toll... and editing isn't really a creative process, actually quite the opposite. So where do you draw inspiration from? My kids are a wealth of ideas.
Nightmares are good too, my wife has doozies. Anyone want to send ideas, they would be welcomed.
Maybe an odd combination of foods before bed? A bit of gruel might conjure up a Marley to my Scrooge... more of gravy than of grave :)
