Nick Cave on inspiration

Previously, I've repeated Cave's announcement that he is not in a creativity contest.  More recently, he explains more of the gritty work involved in creative pursuits.
Cave is not the type of songwriter to sit around waiting for lightning to strike. 
‘‘Inspiration is a word used by people who aren't really doing anything. I go into my office every day that I'm in Brighton and work. Whether I feel like it or not is irrelevant.'' 

I have only heard a little of Cave's music - and like what I have heard - but I see from his website that he is involved many fields.  His books are listed at Goodreads.
