When I write a story, I start with the characters. That’s what makes stories worthwhile. I find that the visuals, the plot and the themes all come after that. One thing I find it hard to do is write a story based on genre. I think that makes it feel too narrow. I want to think of the world of the story so that if it makes sense for the characters, I can go between genres.
