Goodreads asked Sierra Donovan:

How do you get inspired to write?

Sierra Donovan Jack London once said, "You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." I was eternally grateful to him for admitting this.

Ideas for scenes and lines of dialog will zap me at random when I'm going about my business (often when there's not a pen or a keyboard within easy reach). But on a day-to-day basis, I need to sit down and write, whether inspiration is calling me or not!
