Goodreads asked Craig Simpson:

How do you get inspired to write?

Craig Simpson I guess every writer has their own reasons for wanting to write, whether they feel they have something important to say, or maybe just have a spark of a great idea. Some love the process itself, the wordsmithing, the construction, building characters and plot etc. But an enduring one for me is that of communication - I love the idea that my stories and storyworlds are created inside my head and then through my books enter the heads of others, whether the reader lives next door to me or the other side of the world - how cool is that!
