My inspiration is usually brief due to conflicting interests. I am frequently inspired by reading J.R.R. Tolkien and his biographies. His genius is fantastic and a source of the overwhelmed feeling I get when I try to write. Usually I start a project and never get past the first few pages or get inspired and write something really fast and never get back to it. I hope to publish at least one decently sized book in my lifetime; probably in a fantasy or historical fiction genre.
