Often when I daydream I use atmospheres im familiar with for the settings. for example, one of my characters house is the exact same as my aunts house. one of my characters has the same house as my next door neighbour. and the school they go to looks exactly like mine. I guess its difficult for me to make up my own room or house and remember exactly how I made it everytime. I mean like, its its a bedroom or something they'll have different furniture,wall paint, etc but the its the same bedroom as somewhere ive seen before.

alot of the time when i think i made up my own room- i didnt. Ill think i made it up, then i realize like "oh, this is the same kitchen as that girls house i went to in the 6h grade"

I dont know, i just always use setting ive seen in real life. it doesnt bother me except for the fact I cant ever think of better houses and what not for characters. oh and the schools ugly because my schools ugly lol

hm my DD characters are often in a more luxurious environment, with lots of space, green, sunlight...a lot UNLIKE my own country :-(

Many of the objects, storylines, and people in my DD are not my own unique creations. I get ideas from the world around me, such as from the news.

i heard about that too, i heard that every person you see in a dream, youve seen in real life at some point in your life. the article said something like "the serial killer that was chasing you in your dream was the man fixing your dads car when you were 5"
weird bro

OMG, I thought something similar to what you are saying. Or at least I think it's similar to what you do. I thought about my characters and I thought gee, I'm not that inventive. These characters are basically people that I have seen before but I just made them do what I wanted them to do.

Yes, I often do this. I can create new environments, but I'm sure they're in some way inspired by something I've seen before—I just may not know from where exactly the inspiration came.

Actually, I was reading about imagination a while back, and it's known that imagining something uses the same part of the brain that you use to remember things. You can't imagine something you don't understand, have never seen, heard, experienced, and so on. For example, try imagining a new color or shape that you've never seen before. It can't be done.
