Goodreads asked Dave Barkey:

How do you get inspired to write?

Dave Barkey Reading the Bible, good books, or seeing a movie may inspire me. Or the challenge may come when I hear an inane statement by a talking head that calls for rebuttal. Once I get started typing, the inspiration seems to come as I let the story flow. I begin with an outcome in view I believe will exalt Christ and His Kingdom but on the way, twists and turns pop into my mind I did not foresee. Hence the need for continual inspiration to keep writing.
