When you tell your story, you’re characterizing your self. Where do you draw the line of truth. A Character has to be compelling, interesting, captivating. All of us have pieces of these characteristics within ourselves, but none of us is all of them all of the time. But a character in a story can be and is. A character is static; Their most potent colors captured, their most necessary pieces frozen in print. How can you turn yourself into a character without dancing away from absolute “Truth”. Without compromising the novelty of the character. If everything were exposed, it might be more “truthful” but then you lose some magic, some of the presentation, the aura maybe. It’s a delicate balance and an invigorating challenge.
