Goodreads asked Josephine Barly:

How do you get inspired to write?

Josephine Barly Ideas just pop into my mind - unfortunately, I don't have anything specific that inspires me. I just get ideas; I let them brew in my mind until I have this physical need to have it written. And then I give in to that and get lost in a world I come up with.
I do listen to music (mostly classical or instrumental), but the ideas, characters and plots pretty much "appear" in my head.
