Goodreads asked Elizabeth O'Roark:

How do you get inspired to write?

Elizabeth O'Roark Music, most of all -- "Bloom" was written while listening to two songs by Turnover on repeat. But also other authors -- when I read a great author, like Jojo Moyes, I can write for hours or days afterward. I'm never going to write like she does, but she's so fantastic that even falling short of it is okay with me.
