Next, what kind of story do I want this to be? It could be ponderous, a deep dark dive into psychological warfare that encourages readers/viewers to look within themselves. After all, as Socrates said, “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.” Yeah, I could write that. But in this moment, at 6:39 on Tuesday morning, it seems way too heavy to me. I’m the author, I get to choose, so I think I’ll write a different story.
