As we all know, I am not known for writing happy stories. To me, happy stories are boring, lame, and don’t contain anything exciting.
That’s why I only write stories that appear to be darker in nature.
Real life is far from happy; with news of murders, corruption, and diseases running rampant. I usually write a rather watered-down version of real life, with cruel kids, adults who just wring their hands helplessly, and even people who have been beaten down so much by reality that they just cannot properly function in society. In my stories (including fan fiction), the good guys usually don’t win and the bad guys aren’t always defeated, as the good guys may have done some horrible things and the bad guys could have a nice side to them.
I think it’s time to quit telling our children lies about heroes and villains.
