I started telling stories to myself when I first realized that I was a human being, separate from other human beings.
I don’t know what time that happened for you, but for me, it happened right around 8 years old.
I also became infinitely more interested, in that year, in the stories of others. I became a fan of classic novels (by Ernest Hemingway), classic television shows (the Twilight Zone) and even classic radio shows (Dragnet and The Shadow were particularly good).
I became a fan of stories with conflicts, a lack of easy answers and moral ambiguity.
What stories did you become a fan of and when?
