Goodreads asked Joseph Picard:

How do you get inspired to write?

Joseph Picard Generally I say that my stories start with "wouldn't it be cool if:", building a world to make it make sense, then throwing characters in that fit. From there, the story builds itself... it's just my job to guide the characters through.

It's therapeutic to write, I think. I get unwind, and get wound up at the same time.
