Looking at the pic, you see rust. Apparently there was some water damage. So my brain started churning. What could've caused such a mess? That led to an image of an over-flowing bathtub. What if someone had drowned in that tub? How did they drown and why? One thought continued to lead to another until I had the premise of the story. Two rewrites and an editor's pick later, the story was finished. I sent it to a couple of test readers and I got a few "Didn't see that one coming!" remarks which is high praise in my book. That's how the process worked for me.
