Ow do we write ourselves into our story?

1 Answer the question for yourself. How do you write yourself into your own story? Another way of thinking of this would be to consider how you make important decisions. How do you conceive of yourself as a character in your own narrative? When you say myself, what are you referring to? What do you want that person, that conception, to be?
2 Discuss what George Saunders has to say on the subject.
3 Discuss how Saunders ideas are relevant to your own life.

When I ask you, a?How do you write yourself into your own story,a? Iam essentially asking you how you conceive of yourself as a character in your life story. How do you think of yourself and how do you decide who you want to become? There are a number of ways to go about doing this. One might imagine that moral beliefs would guide their choices for the future. Another person might think that, hey, free will -a willingness to try life out at every opportunity and to freely decide what is best for the moment -this is what matters. But this is the sort of thing that would be much easier to consider in your own case.
Note, however, that you still need to engage with Saunders. So the best thing for you to do might be to consider how Saunders discusses these things in his short stories? Do we have examples of characters who use moral beliefs to guide them in times of trouble? Yes, definitely. Or, do we have examples of characters who are deeply affected by their pasts? Or their desires? Or do we have characters who consider others first when making decisions? Certainly. All of the above. So you might think of the stories that you feel were the most important to you -the stories that spoke to you in the strongest terms -and try to approach your own answer to the question with those stories in mind, in order to assist the direction that you want to take.
Then, follow the steps above. Answer the question for yourself, and then engage with stories from Saundersa work in order to provide commentary on how you see yourself making the most important choices that will, eventually, play a key role in developing your own character.

Answer the following question. Weall call it Question #1:
How do you decide who you want to be?
Next answer this question. Weall call it Question #2:
Based on your answer to Question #1, what would Saunders have to say about your answer? You canat talk to Saunders directly, obviously, so you need to determine what he would say by discussing his stories.
If, for example, you assert that the most important factor in determining your future is your moral foundation, well, does Saunders believe that this is a valid determiner of our futures? Does he agree with you, or disagree? Prove one or the other based on the evidence from his stories in Tenth of December.
