all liar are writers

The act of reading itself both produces and requires a moment of unconditional intimacy.

So all writers are liars. By default. Yet, all liars too are writers. Existentially speaking.They live a life, the story of which they write, being both its narrator and protagonist. Here, I mean to refer to true liars, as opposed to casual liars, who might see fit, in want of other means, to at times deploy lies to get what they desire. True liars never merely use a lie. True liars live the lie. So nothing of what they say is ever truly false nor is anything they do actually dishonest. Their words and deeds are entirely consistent with their view of the world, and this view in turn is easily readjusted to fit new developments or interests. True liars will therefore continuously edit and rewrite the story of their lives to convert unexpected events into logical plot twists.If the overall plot must be bent into a new shape to accomodate the twist, this job is done with the greatest ease, and in the blink of an eye. True liars are extraordinarily creative and among the most morally resolute people walking the earth. There's a rationale for all they do which, though it might be in perpetual flux, is still always firmly in place. Try to prove a true liar wrong. You might as well talk to a unicorn and debate its existence. By reasoning with it, you've already entered the story in which, of course, it uncontestably exists.

As freedom for true liars resides in the unfettered possibility to keep rewriting their story, they need to maintain full control over the conditions of writing. To this end, they will therefore insist on controlling the conditions under which they experience-and interept-their lives, as well as the conditions under which they are perceived by others. In fact, both have to align, because it's only when others believe their story too, that true liars feel at ease with how their lives are developing, namely according to the plot they have written, or rewritten.

Critics attract liars. In order to defuse the chance of exposure, true liars will seek the critic's friendship and subsume him or her into their story, as one of its characters. Characters won't violate the plot. T hey can't. Because they're part of it.

Critics are no better anyway. They're writers too, after all.

It's hard to see what could end these painful exercises, break the spell of lies and bring us back to our senses. If it's not love, nor analysis, then perhaps it's still writing that could do the job. For, as much as it will remain a medium of conditional honesty-and thus technically always a true lie-writing does have the power to produce those moments of unconditional experience that rip through the veil of lies and hit you with the force of a bullet to the brain.

"Characters won't violate the plot. T hey can't. Because they're part of it."

inspiring one and makes me think of Always on the side of the egg by Haruki Murakami, saying that "a novelist, which is to say as a professional spinner of lies." and "by telling skillful lies - which is to say, by making up fictions that appear to be true - the novelist can bring a truth out to a new location and shine a new light on it. "

And i read an article saying that stories are actually made up by lies. The real hero of the story is not the main character but the reader. The characters cannot change their experience or fate in their stories. What writers can do is to write the story and give it an end, while readers can imagine and continue the story in their minds freely.

Thanks for sharing it.
