Goodreads asked Kali Altsoba:

How do you get inspired to write?

Kali Altsoba My academic writing is my job, so it does not require inspiration. As for fiction, since I don't play the violin or cello as I would dearly love to do, playing with words is my one creative outlet. Also, my teaching university courses on war in literature and film, and the rich conversations with good students this leads to, flows easily into my creative writing. I am grateful.
