Goodreads asked Alexia Purdy:

How do you get inspired to write?

Alexia Purdy I get inspired by thinking about writing all the time. I tend to chew on a story all day long, in the shower, in the car, when I hear a song or even while trying to sleep. Most of my ideas need to be fleshed out a ton when I'm not at the computer so I do this most of my day, when I don't have much else going on. It helps a lot to have some sort of direction on where I need the story to go when I finally get to sit down and write, usually after the kids go to bed until the wee hours of morning.
