Goodreads asked Tammy Johnson:

How do you get inspired to write?

Tammy Johnson I spend a lot of time trying to really get to know my characters before I start writing. I like to be in a place where I can think like they think and know how they'd react in a situation. It might sound funny, but that's when the pages that I really feel good about come. If the words aren't flowing, I'll listen to some music or watch something on TV. Sometimes watching facial expressions or body language will give me ideas for how I'd want scenes to go and it gets the creativity going. I also like to spend some time on Pinterest looking for characters or setting ideas. I have a wall at home I section off for pinning up photos and blocking out scenes. I like to spend some time with that to get inspired as well.
