Goodreads asked Chip Scarinzi:

How do you get inspired to write?

Chip Scarinzi Judy Blume once told me to carry a notebook with me wherever I go - she said you never know when inspiration will strike. Of course, she's absolutely right. However, if I'm struggling with an idea or if I'm looking to create an environment conducive to inspiration, more often than not you'll find me running. I've run competitively for many years and even a quick run around the neighborhood has, from time to time, led to a waterfall of writing progress.
