Scheherazade, the character in Arabian Nights, was able to elude death by telling stories.
A writer does the same—creating works that will immortalize his or her creative spirit. Thus, I always start with hope—hope that my random musings, my exposure to inspiring writers, and my desire to communicate to the world will all lead me to find my masterpiece and live on though the embodiment of stories. Yes, there is that hope—hope that my story doesn’t end with silence.
