Goodreads asked Rebecca Reilly:

How do you get inspired to write?

Rebecca Reilly I begin each day with a run on one of the nature trails near my home. Story ideas come to me in that quiet time. Inspiration for specific characters bubbles and pops wherever I am! Sometimes, I see someone do something out of the ordinary at the grocery store and it sparks an idea. Sometimes a quirk in me, or someone I know, can develop into the basis for a character. Fortunately, there is so much good, so much evil, so much insanity in all of us that inspiration is not difficult to find.
