Places where a writer or creator can generate ideas from

Rules, regulations and traditions bring a reaction. I find that some of the best stories written question a style of living, or twists one way of life as we know it. Genres such as Dystopia, Utopia, Fantasy, Sci-Fi play with rules, and when done well they can embed strong thoughts and ideas into the reader.

 

Some of the best books I have read often question the status-quo. For example religion has been used in literature for centuries, as a way to ‘judge’ mankind. Personal philosophies are often incorporated by an author either consciously or unconsciously, which, to me, adds extra value to a story. Political movements are great sources, feminism, wars and country leaders; history has witnessed constant change, and during these times interesting plots and stories can arise.
