I am trying Vocal with this fiction story (“Return of the Night Owl” challenge)

I’m a non-fiction guy, in general. Most of my stories are about real experiences. As far as reading goes, I barely read fiction these days. I prefer memoirs.

When I do read fiction, I often think — how in the world are some people so creative? How do they come up with totally made-up stories and build intricate plots lines? My brain could never do this. Not in English, not in Russian, my native language.
