Where do I get my screenplay ideas? I write what I know. It’s that simple. But…
Truth be told, I can’t think of a better way than taking some inspiration from my own life experiences and observations and creating something out of it. It makes it more fun to look at moments of your life in an entirely new way.
I have something called an Autobiographical memory (now there’s a fancy word), which is described by the Wikipedia as “A memory system consisting of episodes recollected from an individual’s life, based on a combination of episodic (personal experiences and specific objects, people and events experienced at particular time and place) and semantic (general knowledge and facts about the world) memory.”
This has definitely been useful with where I get my ideas.
