Nugget #96 -- Fallen People, Broken Lives

Because of my faith, I believe that ultimately good triumphs 
over evil and therefore, I couldn’t be true to myself and 
write nihilist fiction. But it doesn’t keep me from writing 
people as they really are, with all the foibles, fallen natures, 
“bad” words and habits they really have, because I firmly 
believe that one potter molds all the clay and molds into all 
kinds. I don’t feel any kind of “calling” to write the world 
into something that has stories ending with doves flying off 
into the sunset and filled with only happy good people who 
live like the children’s versions of Bible story heroes. My 
heroes are fallen people with lots of stuff to overcome.
