I've another question I've always wondered, and since I have the opportunity to ask it, well.... If you are writing in first person, does the MC have to have a reason for tell their story? Normally if a story I am writing is in first person, it does not begin with anything remotely close to, "I am telling you this story because I have the feeling that you should know...." I just write. My story now in no way states why the narrator is telling her interestingly enough life story, she just is. I know people have their own likings when writing their short stories and novels, etc. and what they include, but I was just wondering if there has to be a purpose for a story. Thanks!!
