I am inspired to write as it helps me sort out my ideas as an architect. I maintain a few blogs, including shapeofsound.us; and victoriameyers.com. I use my blogs to collect ideas. When I am ready to write a book on a topic, I go to my blog, and print my posts that relate to the topic of my book. For my last book, Shape of Sound, I spent one year basically organizing posts I had written over the previous 5 -6 years. It's a great way to start writing. If you write just a small amount, every day, it adds up!
