Goodreads asked John Austin:

How do you get inspired to write?

John Austin I can't really answer this directly. Technical books are less about inspiration I think and more about need. Certainly, I don't have many ideas, but perhaps I am better off in that respect, since as one idea get's exhausted - first it was the metric system and then it was Sudoku puzzles - I seem to come up with one but only one new idea at a time. This makes it easier to focus on the new project whatever it may be.
