Goodreads asked Robert Allen Johnson:

How do you get inspired to write?

Robert Allen Johnson For me, inspiration comes from many sources. When writing shorter pieces, such as the series of guitar related columns I wrote, inspiration is drawn from subjects I'm well-acquainted with. For a series like MAGNUS, it was an idea that had been lodged in my brain for a number of years. The inspiration to begin was captured in the silence of a dark room. The followup to the MAGNUS series, which I've already begun writing in bits and pieces, was simply inspired by a painting hanging in my study.
