I've talked to a few people over the few months that I've been here, and they've all said that to write a good story, I need to know why I'm writing it. I write because it's enjoyable to me; it's a sort of release. My problem, however, is that I don't think that I completely understand the question. By asking why, am I supposed to have an allegorical meaning behind my story, or some underlying moral or lesson? What if I just want to write a cool story and that's it? Is my story doomed to be terrible because I have no other purpose for it than to entertain myself? Thank you for any response!
