A Call for Little Stories

My mother recently asked me if I would ever write a novel. I said, no, because I'm just not that creative. Why should I make up people, places and situations when I find such fascination and joy within the confines of our social groups? 

 The real stories of ordinary people are the fabric of our collective story as a whole.

 As a qualitative researcher, I have to go beyond the number and wade through the context to get the real story.  As common in quantitative analysis, finding statistical significance just isn't enough. Why is it significant? In what way? Under what conditions? 

 What's the story behind the number?
