Goodreads asked Mark Todd:

How do you get inspired to write?

Mark Todd Writing isn't driven by inspiration but by deadlines. I learned that as a journalist. But inspiration for me is a result of insatiable curiosity about the world -- about ideas, people, events -- and then following the what-if questions that surface, scribbking out possibilites that sometimes turn into stories.
