I feel like that’s related to this idea that you don’t pick the world you find yourself in, and finding what kind of person you want to be and what you really want your life to be… I’m interested in characters that are in transition or self-reflection. Usually in those moments there’s a feeling of isolation. I didn’t want to write about the moments in between when you’re feeling great because you don’t learn anything. I don’t feel compelled to write about that. It’s more of those times when you’re looking at yourself and trying to learn about that.
