It is the small bits of ourself that go into the story, that make it special.
Tonight’s muse comes with a picture. Just one, and that’s all you get. Oh, and a question:
Isn’t it true that the best of stories always seem to be closer to reality than they are to fiction?
They transfigure their medium, becoming something else, much more valuable than words on paper, sentences glued together.
The best of stories are always more… more than all their components put together, more than just storytelling or mastery of the word. The best of stories are closer to revealing who we are than anything else we’ll ever create.
