On why she writes
Because I can’t not. I mean, what else am I going to do with my life? That’s another way of putting it. I simply must. Writers simply can’t help themselves. In a way they’re sort of like the queen of England. Every writer is doomed to his or her profession. What else is the queen going to do with her life? She was born a queen; she’s stuck. And writers are stuck, too.
