Goodreads asked Tom Wither:

How do you get inspired to write?

Tom Wither I spend quite a bit of time in the morning reading the news from eight or nine different news outlets and another four or five technology periodicals, and I often find the spark of a story idea in something I read. In fact, I just found a story element I'd like to use in a recent Supreme Court decision on cell phone privacy.
