Should you tell stories of a world better than ours, without prejudice, discrimination, and hate; or tell it like it is, with all the bias and ugliness you’re trying to oppose?
The worst thing you could do would be to find a balance. Balanced stories are neutral, boring, and forgettable. No one talks about neutral stories.
Some people read because books help them imagine a better way to do things, others because books remind them how badly the world needs to change.
Both kinds of stories are powerful in their own way.
You don’t have to please everyone.
In fact, the fewer people you attempt to please, the better your chances of making a living out of telling stories.
