Goodreads asked Gail Carson Levine:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Gail Carson Levine FORGIVE ME, I MEANT TO DO IT came about because I heard that William Carlos Williams's poem, "This Is Just to Say" has been spoofed for adults for decades, and I thought, Why not for kids, too?
