Goodreads asked C. Michael Powers:

How do you get inspired to write?

C. Michael Powers I mix up the playlists in my car. When I want to be inspired, I'll usually listen to either some haunting music like Evanescence, Explosions in the Sky, 30 Seconds to Mars, or Muse or other types of rock. When I'm actually writing, I'll put on movie scores and sometimes a little bit of new age. I can't listen to music with lyrics when I'm writing, or I'll find myself singing along instead of punching on the keys.
