Goodreads asked Ryan Toxopeus:

How do you get inspired to write?

Ryan Toxopeus Ideas pop into my head and I need to get them down. While I know the overarching story for my trilogy, I sometimes have a scene or a part of a scene appear while I'm not thinking about writing (in the shower, walking down the street, riding the bus, etc.).
If the inspired section is not what I'm working on at the moment, I need to blaze through the parts I'm on to get to the part that I had the inspiration for. My best weeks in terms of word count tend to come when I have something burn into my brain that's several scenes away and I MUST get there asap.
