When the story is finished I feel relieved. I then feel depressed as if I’ve come down from some kind of high, now that the emotion has been exhausted. I think that perhaps I shouldn’t write anymore. Will anyone like my story? Will anyone be able to relate to it? I do not know the answers to these questions. I do not have any illusions as to being a great writer, but that is not my reason for writing. My reason for writing has always been about expression.
The story I am most proud of is a story called “Letting Go”. This story is about a child growing up and leaving her parents. It’s a story that many could relate to and I got a pretty good response from it. Although it was emotionally satisfying to write that story, I can not relate to it personally. It amazes me that I could write something like that without going through the experience myself.
Sometimes I write stories that are hard for people to relate to. One such story is called “Fix the Sky”. It’s about getting along with people who are not very likable. Sometimes people tolerate other people because they feel obligated to do so . They feel obligated because the Bible says we are to Love our brothers. I think the idea is something everyone can relate to but not many people could relate to the story because of the way it was written. Both of the main characters are jerks and not very likable. I think everyone has been a jerk at one time or another to someone and maybe people don’t like to read about characters like that.
Thank you all for reading.
