I'm not a fan of that word "inspired." It's too easy to be uninspired and play with Legos instead. I have a target word count for every writing day, and I text my hubby when I've reached it. (He's a sales guy - very into incentives and accountability. Very helpful!) I'm getting better at actually writing an outline; knowing what scene(s) I'm working towards helps me move things forward. Though, to be honest, meandering isn't always a bad thing - I often figure out some key things about my characters when I put them in unexpected situations.
