This blog exists to help me write. My main goal is to write a book. For now, I'm going to try to put together one story at a time. I will publish each of them here, one scene at a time.
I chose the name Curiosity & Conflict because these are the two main elements I want to include in each of my stories.
People are curious when they are given just enough information to make them want more. Over explaining kills curiosity. I want to write stories that keep people curious, that keep them wanting to turn the page.
A story without conflict is boring. No one tells stories without conflict. There is no point to tell such a story, except perhaps for the sake of a joke. When someone begins a story, we expect conflict. We expect there to be villains and obstacles. I want to portray meaningful conflicts between dynamic characters where there are no easy answers.
