“Writing fiction is the act of weaving a series of lies to arrive at a greater truth.”
– Khaled Housseini

Quoted by Tom Farr on Medium.

Fiction writers are the best kind of liars. Using the storehouse of their imaginations, fiction writers make up stories that take readers on a journey with a character who discovers something important about themselves or the world around them as they strive for the goal of their story.
– Tom Farr
