People write stories. I have often wanted to write a story too. There are(at least) two kinds of stories.
You have a sudden pint of inspiration and a plot strikes you in the middle of the night. You wake up and decide to put it down in black and white(or even in colour,now that you have the luxury of word processors).
And there is another kind. It's a story that you tell yourself. And you write it down just to make it easier for you to believe. Like we all rely more on printed and polished letters more than crude hand written notes.
In absence of an inspiration I would have written a story (of the second kind) too. But then, I don't have a itching conscience.
