"I've been putting all of the between-tour time toward the novel," says Numan, whose biggest hit "Cars" hit No. 8 on the Hot 100 in 1980. "It's nice to do something creative that's not about music. I think it helps the whole creative flow -- it opens doors in your mind. The greater variety of creative things you can do just helps in general to not get blocked."
