Thanks KB. Reminds me of watching Margaret Atwood in conversation with Stephen King at the International Festival of Authors a few years back. She asked the dreaded question, "Stephen, where do you get your ideas." Stephen King: "I just make this shit up."

I'm inclined to agree with the "canned" response from the author in the cartoon: "my work is born from a stew of research, personal experience, and the influence of authors I cherish" and everything else in the stew.
