It happened by accident. I mean, that’s how I see it. Of course every moment of my life led up to it:

  1. That day when, walking down the road with Simon Fuller, in Hampton Court, I decided not to ask Simon whether I could audition for the band which, in the end, morphed into The Spice Girls.
  2. My decision to concentrate on the literary side of my sensibility, aged 16 years.
  3. My lack of education.
  4. Educating myself.
  5. My love of the literary since birth; oh yes
  6. My bull-like persistence.
  7. My innability to understand that rejection from one publisher does not mean rejection from all publishers.
  8. My biblical upbringing.
  9. My romance with WordPress, and Twitter.
  10. Just now, my computer screen froze, and so I thought, I’ve been meaning to get to Ben Huberman’s post….
