Stories About People

Arguably, all stories are about people. They have to have characters, and those characters are either people or person-like beings. They are the bridge that we use to connect to the goings on in the story. 

It is classically said that there are only three kinds of story: man vs. man, man vs. god, and man vs. himself. But the one uniting theme here is man. A story without a person is not a story. 

When you are looking for inspiration for your story, remember that it has to have a person, and grow it from there.
