Goodreads asked Ian King:

How do you get inspired to write?

Ian King Dreams, events, even little snippets of words I might hear, or things I might have seen. I'll tell you what, sometimes I get these random thoughts out of the blue, and already start to create it into some amazing story in my head. The darn trick though is to get a piece of paper or notebook and write it down. Sometimes if I haven't, I find it slips away and that makes me very sad. :(
