Goodreads asked Carolyne Aarsen:

How do you get inspired to write?

Carolyne Aarsen So sorry I haven't responded sooner!! Like I said earlier, I forgot about this portion of Goodreads. I'll try to make sure I stay in touch better. As for inspiration? Sometimes it's just the fact that I have deadlines that keeps me in the chair. I often have to push past a lot of resistance but once I get going, the inspiration seems to come. Most of it is simply sheer determination and accepting the fact that I can fix it later, just get something on the paper to fix.
