Goodreads asked David Soper:

How do you get inspired to write?

David Soper I heard of a very successful writer who hires a cover designer (Fiverr is very good.) and frames the cover before he writes a word. He hangs the framed cover on the wall just above his monitor. He needs only to glance up and feel the urge he started with and the words follow.
