Goodreads asked Paul Toffanello:

How do you get inspired to write?

Paul Toffanello I spend a lot of time in my head thinking about my characters, their situations, the challenges to resolution of their conflicts, and after a period of time, I find a good chunk of days - usually 2-3 - where I hole myself up somewhere quiet and then just write.
I have come to trust this process, and it helps me avoid writer's block.
As for inspiration, I find it everywhere. In my children, my grandchildren, the kids I meet in my school presentations, and through my own reading of good stories.
