Goodreads asked Caleb Wachter:

How do you get inspired to write?

Caleb Wachter Music is hugely inspirational, probably because it doesn't interfere with the physical act of writing (at least...not until I start using voice transcription software!).

Playing video games with deep, rich story-lines is also a big positive force. It allows my brain to disengage from daily activities and I've actually found that I play my best chess, go, sudoku, and solitary-card-games after a few hours of playing Final Fantasy, Skyrim, Mass Effect, or a similar game.
