“Little Pill” is my take on the prolific over-medication of children. This isn’t one of my favorite stories, but it is indicative of how our writing is informed by our beliefs. Even when we are desperately trying to divorce our work from our convictions, our convictions will bleed through. Why not embrace them?
Artists use their creation as their voice. Even the most disturbing topics allow for the expression of a stand or belief. Combining those convictions with quality writing that is also engaging can be very gratifying and permits the writer to indulge in a bit of social commentary to boot. Ultimately, a social stand is a great springboard for any artistic endeavor.
