Some of the best writing ideas follow something already familiar. What happened to Peter Pan after he grew up? Under what circumstances might Alice return to Wonderland?

Or we might take something from the future and ask what it would look like in the distant past. We could put a modern Marty McFly into the 1950s or have Star Wars with an Shakesperian flair.
