Goodreads asked J.R. Tompkins:

How do you get inspired to write?

J.R. Tompkins I get inspiration, I suppose, by placing myself in a spot where I might be open to seeing or hearing it. By that, I mean that I'll explore a desert landscape, or sit under a tree singing with summer birds, or listen eyes-closed to an ethereal soundtrack. It comes to me when I meet it halfway, like meeting a good friend at a coffee house.
