Goodreads asked Fran Smith:

How do you get inspired to write?

Fran Smith I don't rely on inspiration. I find that just writing, even when I don't feel much like it, always works best. I do have times when a hundred ideas flood into my head all at once, though. That happens most often when I'm travelling. If I get really stuck, I just go somewhere and watch and listen to people. You can't do that for long without a story beginning to form.
