Many will point to an idea that they had or some thing which they saw that sparked a book or a novel or something. Often, writers will refer to their writing as a craft or a bit of a hobby.

    writing seems like an art to me because of the process. some would call it scientific, and there is a science-like aspect to it, but there's more intuition involve. there's something about the way writing is created–it's not linear, and it's not a checklist. it's like a dance, swirling back and forth, linking hands and concepts together at various moments through the composition…and when it's complete, you don't cross it off the checklist. you stand back and admire it, and you allow others to look at it and admire it in their own way.
