Goodreads asked Robert Alan:

How do you get inspired to write?

Robert Alan That’s a tough one. To quote Dorothy Parker again, “I hate writing, I love having written”. In my case maybe ‘hate’ is a little too strong a word, but I do find writing difficult, and, like most things I find difficult, it’s easy to come up with excuses for put it off. I think what most help motivate me to write, is to read a lot.
