Lies, Damn Lies, and Writing Fiction

Posted by on September 28, 2012 in rebel flight | Comments Off on Lies, Damn Lies, and Writing Fiction

As I read through yesterday’s Super Secret Project, I found all sorts of tidbits that I’d buried in the story — snatches of personal history and family lore.  (Mostly, these are very minor things, like a pet’s name for one character, or a quick memory for another.)  A *lot* of my past gets woven into every novel that I write.

And sometimes, those pasts get twisted a bit.  Spiced up a bit.  Okay, sometimes, I out and out lie.  But that’s what makes a good story, right?  I muse more about the line between fiction and lies over at Black Ink, White Paper.  Check out what I have to say, and leave a comment of your own!
