Language is an intrinsic part of who we are and what has, for good or evil, happened to us.-Alice Walker
What Alice Walker said had a profound effect on why I do not write stories where all is happily ever after. Where the characters endures no trials and tribulations. I do not write stories where the saints or good people are perfect. Nor nothing bad ever happens to them. To me that is not realistic, that’s idealistic. Much bad happened to saints in the past and still do. To me, fictional doesn’t have to mean wholly unrealistic.
