Goodreads asked Adrean Messmer:

How do you get inspired to write?

Adrean Messmer I listen. To podcasts, to people, to crappy TV shows. Any little thing can help build a world or a character.

I also play a lot of games. Everything from World of Warcraft to Shadowrun. It helps me come up with characters and really get into their heads. And the world building is fun.

And then there's my muse. I married him to keep him close so when he says all the cool things in his head, I get to hear them and write them down.
