Because I have always written; at least from the time I could spell: and recently I have discovered how unreliable memories are, especially childhood memories… I am coming to terms with the possibility that I am an unreliable narrator.
So I am embracing this phenomenon and have decided I can be intentionally deceptive. How these tools have evaded me up until now is not a mystery to me.
The adults in my child world had severe punishments for lying to them; which is interesting because they not only told lies constantly, they lived them thoroughly.
This could be fun!
