Goodreads asked Karen Ranney:

How do you get inspired to write?

Karen Ranney Just as I don't believe in writer's block, I don't believe that a professional writer requires inspiration. You have a job to do - a book to write, a story to tell. It waits, impatiently, for you to finish sleeping, eating, living and finally you're back, sitting in front of the computer where you're supposed to be.
