I've been told that the best way to make your work feel real is to pull inspiration from yourself. If I was able to, I would have liked to describe themes of familial strife and building a new life from the ashes of the last, both of which I think I've felt to an extent. This story was an attempt for me to look at myself through an outsider's lens, so I'd love to know whether you related to it on some level.
