Goodreads asked Patty Blount:

How do you get inspired to write?

Patty Blount I've always loved writing but lacked confidence in my abilities. Then I read the Harry Potter stories to my son and when I learned Rowling wrote them in coffee shops while her baby napped, realized you don't need to have MFAs -- you just need to want to tell a story. So I did :)
