Goodreads asked Trevor D. Richardson:

How do you get inspired to write?

Trevor D. Richardson I listen to Tom Waits. That's the short answer.

The long answer is I don't believe in waiting to write when I am inspired. I write when I decide it is time to get some work done. Most of the time I can just sit down and work, but when I'm not in the mood I listen to Tom Waits. There's something about that creepy, apocalyptic circus vibe in his music that fills me with this need to put words on the page.
