Goodreads asked Peggy Milam Creighton:

How do you get inspired to write?

Peggy Milam Creighton A lot of writers like to imagine "What if?" Great ideas can also come from exploring places, reading the news, observing people, searching through photographs, and even revising a classic. I like to begin with an issue that I care deeply about. That keeps me motivated when through the long haul of putting a book together.
