Who is really writing that book?

I run a writing/critique workshop through Meetup.com There are over 50 active writers who submit pages for peer review.
Some of these offerings are memoirs, some fiction. What I have learned over the past year is that when someone has the urge to write a book, often there is another voice inside guiding them into writing this story.
Who is writing their book?
I have come to the conclusion that a story that evolves from a writer, especially those not depending on income from their works, is not always the one they originally intended. This is especially true of those who seem to have an inspiration and suddenly tear off on an adventure not knowing where it will take them.
I have experienced several amazing revelations in my group, revelations that the authors themselves do no realize is occurring.
Writers write… but who is composing the words? Sometimes the composition is revealed almost like an Ouija board. My conclusion is that when someone goes to write a book, it is often a story that wells up from deep within their soul, a story that needs to be told.

The result of was the 3by3 writing method - a three step program to start and then continue the process of completing a story all the way to publication.
