Goodreads asked C.J. Ellisson:

How do you get inspired to write?

C.J. Ellisson I read over my outline, I picture the story and action in my mind as it's unfolding. Once I feel like I've got a true sense of what's going I start to write. Trying to do so before the story is fully fleshed out and ready usually results in a lot of wasted time.
