Goodreads asked Al Boyle:

How do you get inspired to write?

Al Boyle I could take this question two ways: how do I find inspiration to write on a regular basis, or how do I decide which story I'm going to write? For the former, the tremendous sense of satisfaction I get from writing fuels me. For the latter, I'll come up with an idea, and if I like it enough, I'll try to develop it over the course of a few brainstorming sessions. If, as the idea evolves, I find myself getting psyched about the possibilities, then it's a go.
