Goodreads asked Eric J. McAnallen:

How do you get inspired to write?

Eric J. McAnallen Inspiration comes from all areas if you're watching and listening. I get ideas from friends, strangers, odd things I've witnessed, weird ideas that pass through my head and the occasional thing my wife says. It doesn't matter if I have a place to put it at the time, I write it down in my journal and it may germinate into something later.
