You, as a writer, must believe in what you write.
• What are your motives?
• What is your vision?
• What does your story say to the reader?
Every genre of writing answers questions and has moral value. Universal concepts can still have a unique shaping on content (setting, characters, idea) and form (election and arrangement of events).
Whatever your story’s genre, it has content and content requires structure or form to shape it. Story is about principles, not rules; about universal patterns, not formulas.
