Stephen King said, “Fiction is a lie, and good fiction is the truth inside the lie.”
As a writer, this is one of my favorite quotes. The entertainment of prose makes me crack-up when I develop it and LOL when I get feedback from friends and family.
“I didn’t know you…”
“When did that happen?!”
“You went to the movies by yourself?”
“I’m so sorry.”
“Did he get caught?”
“I didn’t know you and your husband…”
Bwhahahahaha! I put enough of my true life into a piece to get started and then lie a little to make it interesting. It’s called a story!
