A lot of story ideas come from general life experiences. There are genres and Sci-Fi doesn’t normally happen everyday. If you ask the question What if?
What if dogs could spesak any we could understand and talk back?
What if ghosts were real and around all the time? Once someone died, they turned into a ghost.
What if we could speak and understand every other animal on the planet? What sort of government would we have to have to handle that?
There are lots of different places and world states. They create more questions to answer.
Be aware that the reviews of my Spring Short Story have reveiled to me that you can not mix genres. If you are in Sci-Fi you can not add humour, as you move out of your genre audience.
