Goodreads asked Amanda McIntyre:

How do you get inspired to write?

Amanda McIntyre Deadlines are good. I believe it was Michael Crichton who once said that some of his best writing came after his wife called him to supper.

Readers inspire me. My street team is a wealth of opinions, suggestions and I give them much credit for inspiring me.

Getting inspired sometimes isn't nearly as difficult as "staying" inspired. I have a pin near my desk from a dear author friend, Judi McCoy that says.."Finish the damn book!" I look at that a lot;)
