Goodreads asked Bailey Vincent:

How do you get inspired to write?

Bailey Vincent I write in the same way that I choreograph dances. I almost always have a vague idea of the beginning and possibly the end... and then I have to figure out the middle as I go. I call this my "skeleton" when it comes to the stage, but for writing, if I plan TOO much... it ruins all of the fun. Writing a novel feels like a chase- chasing my own subconscious to see what's going to happen next. If I figure out every nuance and detail in advance, I'm literally too bored to put pen to paper (or rather, finger to keyboard)... I need the chase to keep going. In terms of other inspirations- I try to keep a finger (are all the digit references getting creepy?) in a variety of creative things. I'm a horrible artist but I dabble just for fun. I dance to keep my body artistically fueled. I read all the time. And mostly, I'm fascinated by people.
