I don't disagree with that at all. That's why I chose the word germinate -- it's an organic process for sure. And often story ideas that were long ago run a little ways out before I discarded them show up on the page as something some secondary did to connect two dots in a completely different story. And I don't even notice it until after the writing process is ended.

An idea pops up to my mind when I see pictures, hear events or read stories.
Sometimes when I see a person that I have talked to sensibly should remind me that
this conversation can be appealing to write about. Sometimes, it is researched. ;)
