I don’t write plot driven stories. I posit; I agitate; I present contradictions, and in that respect, I suppose I write belief driven stories. The point A to point B happens when the main character (usually the narrator of the story) questions a belief they have at the beginning of the story and comes to realize they were wrong by the end. It’s a straightforward trajectory, and I prefer it that way. I write about people. People are grotesquely stupid, predictable, and complacent, and for some reason, I find a simple albeit flawed beauty in that.
