Q: What’s easier for you – imagining a happier world, or a darker one?

A: If we’re talking about a future for our own world, sadly it’s easier for me to think that this world will get darker, at least in the immediate future. However, if we’re talking about an imaginary story world, then it’s easier for me to imagine a happier one. I write and I read fantasy to experience places unlike the world I inhabit every day. Why not make those happier ones?
