The act of creating a story is foreign to me. I’m both awed and baffled by people who can just decide, out of their own brains, that this is what should happen in a story, this is what this character would do. I don’t know how to create a story.
What I do know is how to see the story that exists in real life, the one people pretend doesn’t exist. I might not have the imagination for writing fiction, but I have the eyesight for writing nonfiction, and that’s pretty rare too.
