Nobody gets into a band and thinks they're going to have a 30-year career.

There's the constant concern with what happens to you when you die. Every society thinks about that and makes things to deal with that.
I don't think anyone sits down and thinks, 'I know, I'll be a chick-lit writer.' You write the book that you want to write and then other people say, 'Oh, that's chick-lit.' You say, 'Okay.'
