Why do you write? For yourself? To see the joy in someone else as they read your masterpiece? Or maybe just to tell the story that you know needs to be told? Whatever your reason, there is a reason that you write, otherwise you wouldn’t write.
Well , I love to tell stories, always have and always will, but my ultimate goal is not to just tell my story, but to tell someone else’s. I am obsessive, which includes obsessing about random people that I’ve never met and probably wont ever meet, but I simply have to know every detail of their lives. It’s like my crack, the more I know, the more I obsess about them, and I have to know just one more detail about them. I wouldn’t say I’m a stalker because I have yet to meet anyone who I have obsessed about, but I’m probably the closest thing to a stalker that you can get. It’s not that I am enamored by their fame or fortune, but rather I am fascinated about what made them who they are, the little things that most people would never know about them but shaped the person that they became. I still remember the day I sat in a library and read a book about Michal Jackson and wished someone had wrote a story about his life, not the rise to fame that everyone knows, but rather the internal struggles that shaped who he was. He of course died, but that dream of telling the story of one of my many idols lives has always stayed with me. I love writing fiction and will never stop, but one day I dream to be so honored to be trusted with the story of one of the greatest people that have lived, and be allowed to breathe life into the story that would otherwise be lost to all who are as interested in the great as I am.
What is your dream, your ultimate wish for what you could do with your writing? Do you ever see yourself achieving this dream or do you just toss it aside as simply that, a dream?
