The thing that makes a story meaningful is the power to touch the audience.
All writers want their readers to keep reading but we as writers must say something worth that attention. Have you ever read a book you couldn’t put down, watched a movie that kept you on the edge of your seat?
Anyone who knows me, knows I love old black and white movies; the plot, the acting, the magic. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to Bogie and Bacall. I enjoy the modern-day flicks; “Girl Trip” which I loved! “The Hitman’s Body Guard” awesome!
The thing that makes a story meaningful is the power to touch the audience. You care about fictions people in imaginary situations like the movie “The Bodyguard.” Watching your favorite team play a sport to rooting for the good guy in an action movie, stories move us and change us.
Movies, books, theater, music all bring us together and make our differences small and our similarities big!
It is my job to make you feel, think, an act. If I have done that I have told a story!
