Goodreads asked J.A. Prentice:

How do you get inspired to write?

J.A. Prentice I try to think of ideas and write them down until I find something- a character, a plot, a setting- that really compels me to write about it. After that, it's a matter of holding on to that initial inspiration and making sure I can make a coherent story out of it.
Recently, I've been getting some inspiration from reading mythology and history. Many of the ideas can form the seeds for interesting stories.
