Inspiration comes in different ways. Often times it comes from music, but sometimes I'll catch sight of an abnormality from the corner of my eye, and I look at it, finding it was not abnormal, but what I thought I saw gives me an idea and I scribble it down for later use, (many parts throughout the Eysheus Saga are from such moments). Other things that cause me to write are strange characteristics in people I meet. Personality quirks I find fascinating. Quite a few of my stories were created merely to house a character I created. Like Malakavel; I created him and decided he needed a story, and so his life is now being built around the man I made. This, dear reader, is how I acquire the inspiration to write. It does not come by force; it simply comes when the world shifts at the right moment.
