How did you come up with The Last Apprentice? Where did your ideas come from? I am currently trying to write my own book and it just doesn't want to come out. Thanks,
I first got the idea for the series when I moved to a village and discovered it had a local boggart - I made a note about a man who hunts boggarts and years later when I had to come up with a story at short notice I went back through my notebook, found that note and developed the idea. I get inspiration from dreams or more specifically nightmares, the landscape, mythology and from reading. The only thing you can do is persevere and eventually you will come up with an idea that inspires you. I was rejected 97 times over 10 years but I never gave up.
