What people inspire you? (No fair naming any of us, we would die from flattery.)
I’m inspired by a number of bloggers, most of whom are very obscure and are too embarrassing to name. To name some less obscure ones, I’m inspired by Sean Carroll, a cosmologist, and Greta Christina, a writer about sex, atheism, and feminism. There are also some asexual bloggers, but I suppose to be fair I shouldn’t name them.
In writing fiction, I’m most inspired by Margaret Atwood and Kazuo Ishiguro.
Another embarrassing person to name is my boyfriend. I’m inspired by the way he sings to himself in the bathroom, I think that’s really deep.
