“I’ve never looked at my life and thought, I wish I could write about having different circumstances. And if I want to jump into a character, I’ll do something like my song for the Hunger Games soundtrack. When the Hunger Games people came to me and said “we want you to write from Katniss’ perspective,” it was really crazy to read that book, jump into her skin, and to have a whole different set of hopes and fears in front of me.”
