Goodreads asked Charlene Mattson:

How do you get inspired to write?

Charlene Mattson I used to say that I could be inspired by anything-and it's still true!-but now that I'm teaching full time, I've realized that I need a lot of peace and quiet which I've been lacking in the last six months. Sigh.

Inspiration though can come from all over the place, so it's good to keep an open mind.
