Not everyone agrees with this approach. In Writing Magic, Gail Carson Levine says that she doesn't have many story ideas. She preaches,
"You don't have to have lots of ideas to be a writer."
Ideas are not precious, so if you are not the kind of person to whom inspiration comes easily, there is no need to worry.
The craft is more important, so is consistency, dedication, and habit. With good craftsmanship, you can make any idea a masterpiece. With routine, you can complete your project and develop skills along the way.
