Inspiration comes in many ways to me. When I'm deeply involved in a project, I find that I wake up in the morning filled with new ideas, after a good night's sleep. When I work out with music, often I will get new ideas inspired by certain lyrics or a melody that stirs emotions inside me. Typically, when I'm writing, however, I prefer to write in silence. Clint Hill loves to have music on all the time -- preferably jazz or anything in the Sinatra era.
