"Stories are important," the monster said, "They can be more important than anything. If they carry the truth."

Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

As human beings, we're natural story tellers. There's something about tales that draws us and moves us. We get attached to people who don't exist, we cry over the things that happen only on pages.

It's fascinating

Maybe we connect ourselves to fiction because stories give us hope and tell us truths. Truths that can help us.

But sometimes, as Sam Gamgee says in The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien, the great stories are full of darkness and danger and sometimes you don't want to know the end because how can the end be happy? How can things turn out all right after so much bad happened? But we read on because in the end, darkness is only a passing thing. A new day will come and the sun will shine all the clearer.

And it only takes a ray of light for us to remember that hope. 

"Stories are light. Light is precious in a world so dark."

Kate DiCamillo

We're all characters in the greatest story ever told. Sometimes we just need a little light to help us find our way in the dark, dangerous world. 

That's why I write books. Not just because I love creating worlds in my head, but because if someone, while reading my story, finds in its pages and characters the encouragement to press on, that would be the greatest gift to me as an author. Books make us more empathetic to our fellow man. And if I can help people just by telling them a story of good versus evil, I will.
