Living with a writer, one comes to understand a little about the process of creating something from almost nothing. We draw on different things for inspiration and sometimes from combined life experience, sometimes from things we've watched on TV or read. In some cases we can find inspiration in games as well. Like this friend who's made a Wizard101 fan fiction story based on a set of adventures...
If you are a wizard101 fan and have written something by way of fan fiction please forward a link and I'll post about it.
