M. The Point of Your Story

Do you think that your story has a hidden message?

When you write, do you write to tell a story or do you try to teach people?  There are some great books and stories that I have read through the years that don't teach a thing.  They are there to entertain and that seems to be all that they do.

But, then you have stories with hidden messages or ones that are closer to the surface.  They are meaningful and I feel that after I read it, I walk away with some knowledge I may not have had before.

So, what do you think you write for?  Do you want to teach through your stories or would you rather just entertain?  Are you looking to add meaning or possibly you added meaning and didn't know you did it.
