Goodreads asked Ryan Dalton:

How do you get inspired to write?

Ryan Dalton Inspiration can come from anywhere, and you just have to be ready for it. My best source, though, is music. I've created scenes and even entire characters after hearing a song that hit me in just the right way and at just the right time. I put together soundtracks for every writing project, which helps me establish the mood and rhythm of important scenes. Music enriches my writing in numerous ways, and it fuels my inspiration engine every day.
