Goodreads asked Scott Overton:

How do you get inspired to write?

Scott Overton The thing that winds me up more than any other and gets me itching to get back to the keyboard is reading a great book. I recognize how much pleasure I got from the story, and want to do the same thing for others. Just as important, experiencing really good writing from another author always inspires me to rise to new heights next time I sit down to write.
