Goodreads asked J.D. Mason:

How do you get inspired to write?

J.D. Mason With my writing schedule, I don't always have the luxury of waiting on inspiration. And there are times when I just have to push through to reach my word count and deadline despite the fact that my muse is missing. Not every page is going to be good. Not every plot is going to be well developed and not every character is going to be complete, but inspiration is a fickle thing--too fickle to count on and if you want to be a professional, you have to realize that.
