Goodreads asked C.J. Carella:

How do you get inspired to write?

C.J. Carella Originally it was an urge that could not be denied, a pressure to tell the stories building up in my head. Now that I'm doing it for a living, it's a combination of inspiration and perspiration. I think about my current stories (and future ones) a lot while I'm doing other stuff, and then I set aside at least 3 hours (shooting for 6) a day to do nothing but stare at the blank screen until the words come out.
