I have a novel or two in me (or more?).
-Stories are me. I think in stories sometimes; it helps me understand situations better. Stories are so layered. It's better than just stating the facts linearly!
-I like the written language.
-I like using my imagination.
-I like being creative and creating things.
For all these reasons, I think I have a novel in me (or more). I think I have had this for my whole life. I just didn't know how to get it out until now.
I HAVE to write my novels, books, whatever they are. In a way, that's when I'm being the most me.
