Goodreads asked Terrance Aldon Shaw:

How do you get inspired to write?

Terrance Aldon Shaw Inspiration has very little to do with writing. Hard work, a regular schedule, and the willingness to sit down and concentrate regardless of one's mood or energy-level have considerably more to do with turning out a novel or short story than "inspiration".
