That's basically the simplicity of the question. OH, and WHY? I wish that I could write like Nick Hornby. He's so funny, and emotional, and true all at the same time. His characters are very well drawn and I can always find some piece of myself inside each and every one of them. I wish I could tell a story the way he does. I wish I could make it funny and sensitive, and I wish that my characters were that universally comforting.
