Every writer is a liar

Romeo: I had a dream last night.

Mercutio: And so did I.

Romeo: Well, what was yours?

Mercutio: That dreamers often lie.

Romeo: In bed asleep while they do dream things true.

Romeo and Juliet, Act 1, Scene 4, Page 3.

A writer must himself be the first one not believing his own stories. The stories he writes are just tricks to express own feelings, or thoughts,which are not fully conscious yet and hence not fully understood. You too, who reads, should not believe a writer too much. His work is just about giving you the space to see yourself in the mirror of the page he is offering you. Only your sight is real, not the medium through which you are watching. Writing is communication. If you see yourself into what is written then very good. If not it was probably not the right time for this meeting. So please, forgive the shade of arrogance you can find in here. No one knows your personal story better than yourself. Yet, if you get lost in some of the stories provided to you, and if you end up feeling enriched by them, then again very good, you are more then welcomed. And remember, all stories will eventually pass. It is good, though that we manage to share some them every now and then.
