Goodreads asked Harley King:

How do you get inspired to write?

Harley King I don't wait for inspiration. I set writing goals, e.g., a page a day, a poem a day. If you wait to be inspired, you will rarely write. Write for 30 minutes or an hour a day. Even on days when you don't feel like writing, you should write. Inspiration happens in the process of writing, not before.
