“Writing fiction is the act of weaving a series of lies to arrive at a greater truth.”
Writers have to lie to help the readers discover a greater truth.
It doesn’t matter. It could be anything.
What matters is that you still learned something from the story. It could be educational—about writing, sales, or SEO—or philosophical—about truth, life, or self.
All I hope is that it made your life a tiny bit better in any way.
Always remember, even if a story isn’t real. It’s still true.
