Goodreads asked Andrew Salomon:

How do you get inspired to write?

Andrew Salomon I think for writers there are a great many sources of inspiration, some of the stand-out ones for me is reading wonderfully-written stories (and also non-fiction) and seeing how my two young sons react to good storytelling. And then also getting an idea that just won't let me go until I try and bring it to life on the page.
