Goodreads asked Beem Weeks:

How do you get inspired to write?

Beem Weeks Inspiration can be found all around us. All we have to be is observant. I recently found a 1965 telephone book at a garage sale. I paid a quarter for the book. It inspired me to write a blog article about my find. I have also been considering a short story based on an old phone book. And I've been approached about contributing to a magazine an article concerning change. The phone book illustrates the idea of change with such stark truthfulness. Just open your eyes and look around you. Even some mundane little nothing item can inspire a story, essay, or blog piece--or all three!
