Writing thoughts

I am doomed, I tell you. Doomed.

So, I just got home from Best Buy and buying Craig's Stargate DVD's for his birthday. Traffic was light, which means it's a 15 minute drive there, and a 15 minute drive back. I found what I wanted quickly, paid, and walked out of the store. Immediately, I noticed 2 men talking to each other in the parking lot. They were directly in my path on my way to my car, so there was no avoiding seeing them. Normally, not a big deal, but one of the men just struck me, and I found myself glancing back at him as I got into my car.

15 minutes later, as I'm pulling off the highway to turn onto my street to get home, I have a whole story about this man in my head. Worse, I *like* it, and as soon as I eat my lunch, I'm going to sit down and outline it before I forget.

*bangs head on table*

I don't need more plot bunnies, however this one is just calling to me to tackle after I finish Chains. Not Spuffy, though, people, sorry. This one's an original fic all the way. Suspense erotic thriller with reincarnation themes. Dark. For me, at least. :)

Is this just me or does this happen to other people? Writers, I mean. How do you get your ideas? Do they just come to you? Are you sparked by a theme, or are you crazy like me and see a person/thing/place that immediately starts the gears to turning? I'm incredibly curious.
