Not sure how to answer this as I'm not sure what the question is, but I'll answer it nonetheless. I read lots of novels and books by authors on writing, so I get inspiration from them. I also listen to lots of music, and that inspires me. I spend time outside, in the quiet, and that inspires me. I spend outside with my children, and that inspires me. Lots of things inspire me to put things down on paper.
