Goodreads asked Adam L. Feldman:

How do you get inspired to write?

Adam L. Feldman Its been said that inspiration looks a lot like perspiration. That's true for me. Its a lot of work to write, and inspiration usually doesn't just "come" to me. So, I keep a list of blog post ideas handy and carry around a small pocket-sized journal in my back pocket to jot down ideas. Before I start writing a chapter in a book, I meticulously organize a robust outline for the chapter. A lot of the "inspiration" for me occurs as I revise (again and again) those outlines.
