Goodreads asked Connor Coyne:

How do you get inspired to write?

Connor Coyne Wikipedia sez of the word "frisson": "Frisson (French for 'shiver') is a sensation somewhat like shivering, usually caused by stimuli. It is typically expressed as an overwhelming emotional response combined with piloerection (goosebumps). Stimuli that produce a response are specific to the individual."

So basically when that happens to me, and it isn't because I'm cold or in response to any physical reason, I try to think if there's a good way to turn the cause of the shivering into a story. It's a simple as that.
