Reasoning for my writting preference

I've recently got the urge to continue my stories. I've been asked why I tend to focus on animal characters instead of humans. The reasoning behind that is quite simple, animals are more interesting.

Each species of animals has their own traits that make them unique. Take for example, a raccoon. If you give him the ability to walk on hind legs, and to talk (or at least make it seem that way from the readers point of view) you would get everything you would already get from humans, but theres more to them. Add in the fact that they are attracted to shiny things, and tend to rummage though the garbage, which easily allows for comedy.

Not only raccoons, but every animal has their own characteristics. Every animal has the option to easily express a set of characteristics in which, you may or may not see from people.

Now, if I just happen to make great progress on the stories, I'll make a section for stories, and post it there. Until then though, you will just have to wait and see what comes forth.
