Goodreads asked Dennis R. Blanchard:

How do you get inspired to write?

Dennis R. Blanchard Inspiring the reader to get off the couch, turn off the TV and go out into the world and "experience" it. Not only do I want them to purely enjoy reading the story, I want them to go off and work down their own personal “bucket-list.” A reader is investing their personal time, reading my story, I owe it to them to give them something that can take along on their life's journey.
One reader wrote me and told me they purchased five copies of my book for friends and relatives. I obviously reached that reader!
I write the book that I would like to read. I've been gifted with a wonderful family, friends and a life full of adventure. Sharing that, as a writer, is beyond reproach. It makes writing so worth the effort.
