I'm sitting here, after completing two books in full: I'm in the middle of a mind-blowing experience because of the most random cosmic collision. Three events happened simultaneously: the first was something my partner said, the second was a line of lyric and the third was a line of text I was reading when I heard the two sets of words:
He who-must-not-be-named was talking:
"Why don't you do something different?"
I was playing Muse:
"...your time is running out"
reading a Stephenie Meyer interview
"...if I can write a book anyone can"
I announced I was writing a book before I'd ever opened a word document.
If I'm ever asked why I decided to write I think I should lie - I could just blame Muse.
But I'm asking the question anyway: What made you decide to write?
