Goodreads asked Riley Barton:

How do you get inspired to write?

Riley Barton Usually I get my inspiration through dreams--Rain Saga was a back-to-back dream I had for three days in a row. But I also get inspiration from nature while hiking, camping, or hunting. Sometimes I'll be out walking the dogs and I'll see a tree or a cloud or sometihng, and it will trigger the whole creative process. Walks are good that way; they give me time to process my thoughts and start putting them together into a coherent story.
