Would you like to know how to write interesting stories?
Live an interesting life.
There’s a tendency among us creative types to want to stay inside, stay safe in front of our desks as we pound away at the keyboard and create worlds in our minds. And to be sure that is necessary, as is experiencing the worlds others have created. But you must have your own experiences as well. There really is no substitute for being there yourself, even if a good story can get you most of the way there.
Though I love to sit at home late at night and write by myself, I make it a point to go out and do interesting things whenever offered, and to create them myself more often than I might like. If you want to create interesting stories, I suggest you do the same. You’d be surprised at the inspiration you’ll find out in that wide, crazy world.
