I don't really require a lot of inspiration to write. Danika's Planet, was already born and living in my mind before the actual writing began. Once I finally sat down to write it, it was like a flood streaming out at full speed. So, the bigger challenge for me was trying to type fast enough to keep up with the story as it was pouring out of my brain. And then it's hard to shut it down once I've opened the "floodgates". So, I guess I let the story "grow up" in my mind as I ruminate over it and then I sit down and let it out.
