I'm pretty sure large parts of it stem from a personal belief that nearly all of American history exists in a millenarian or post-apocalyptic state -- especially if you think about the fact that, well, yeah, white people came and destroyed nearly every culture already here. Add that to all the religious overtones and influence, the wars, the industrialization, the westward expansion, the mobility, the inability and the overability to fill spaces... this country is batshit, and I am so, so fascinated by it. I keep meaning to take stabs at essays! Hopefully (I seem to use that word a lot) that will happen here, and soon.

Endings are hard. I usually know generally how my stories are going to end, but they take some twists and turns getting there that force change on them, usually for the better.
