Why do you write stories?
I’ve sat here for far too long trying to work out how to answer this simple question. Simple questions are always so hard to answer. There’s hundreds of motivations from “creating my own little worlds” to “the hit of satisfaction from finishing something challenging” to “me like pretty words”.
So I’ll pick one and say REVENGE:
For the little kid who made up stories and played and imagined.
Against the new adult who sat and watched and wasted.
