Over time, reading also fueled my own desire to write. I began crafting short vignettes and quickly progressed to short stories, loving the brevity and neatness of the short form. I liked how I had enough space to explore ideas and situations that interested me, but always with an eye on the inevitable resolution. I enjoyed tying everything up neatly by the time I reached that last, always satisfying, sentence.
Once all of the pieces came together, I began to write and write and write.… The words just flowed and the storyline gracefully unfolded on its own accord. In true Claire fashion, I like to think that perhaps Lily was guiding me to the final resolution. Along the way, I discovered that novels don’t end quite as neatly as my short stories once had, but I also found that the journey of writing a novel, as well as of reading one, can also be much more satisfying. And like Claire, I discovered that Lily might just be everywhere.
