In Six Words: "How I Came Up With the Idea for My Book"

How did the subject for your book occur to you? Did the idea hit you in a blinding flash of inspiration? Did the seed get planted years ago, and you've slowly coaxed it out into the light? Is it something you imagined out of thin air, or is it based on something that's happened to you or someone you know?
