The Storytellers by DragonwolfRooke The Storytellers by DragonwolfRooke
I take my role as a storyteller very seriously, because I know the stories I tell will have an impact on others - for better, or for worse. So often I see stories that focus on the darkness in the world - betrayal, hurt, suffering, pain. I see so many stories that focus on lovers, rather than on love - because those are different things. I don't think many people remember that. But the love between friends, between family, between everyone, is so much more important than physical attraction. Yet it lies forgotten, and some people wonder if it even exists.

The world has forgotten these things, I think. So as a storyteller, I will do my best to tell stories to help people remember. The simple stories that do not change the world, but perhaps, they will change a life. The stories of friends, of kindness, of love, of faith and hope and gentleness.

There are enough stories of the dark. I want to tell the stories of the light.

You're absolutely right, this is just what this world needs! I can only pray that more people like you will step forward to help this world become a better place. I'm an artist and writer myself and I can only hope that i can make such a masterpiece like you have. Please... don't let this talent, no this Miracle fade away, it's because of people like you that make this world a little brighter. You are an inspiration to us all, may your stories live on for the generations to come.

This is amazing. This is what the world needs, and I can't tell you how grateful and, even somewhat surprised (in the greatest way possible), I am to read words like these. What's absolutely great is that you're dedicated to stories, so you have an extremely powerful way being able to share the light and the love and the message you're talking about and make other people aware of them. God bless you.
Thank you for wanting to tell stories of the light.

I need to think about this for a moment... It is touching... I make my characters suffer and cry... Maybe it is time to make one smile

This is truly beautiful. Myself, I hop between stories of dark and stories of light. I want to write stories about love (not lovers, but love), and stories about keeping the light shining over everyone (god that sounds cheesy). But at the same time, I want to write stories where characters are pained, are suffering. The light cannot exist without the darkness, the darkness cannot exist without the light.

It's about time all of us storytellers worked together to keep them in balance, and make sure that neither are ever forgotten.

I must say, it is very true what you say about the love and lovers part. They focus way too much on relationship.
