- Yes, because author's don't always write about personal experiences. Sometimes they come from imagination, but how? From dreams? From another good book? This is what I wonder.
I have, especially since authors so often write from their own experiences--not always, but frequently. When I first read "The Scarlet Ibis," which is so poignant and powerful, I wondered if any of the events in the story were rooted in the author's past--in his own life or in the life of someone he had known. It's such a terribly sad story, I hope that it is completely a work of imagination.

Most stories either come from a writer's experience or their imagination. They then have an interesting framework in order to develop their ideas then fill in the blanks with their experience or imagination.
