I Am Not the Stories I Tell

GREAT post! Vaguely reminds me of the old saw (from Philosophy of Science, notably Korzybski): The Map is Not the Territory: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map–territory_relation (See, also: http://www.learningandteaching.info/learning/assimacc.htm)   Edit: “accidentally” (there are no accidents?) re-posted to the “wrong blog” (meant for Still Another Writers Blog).  Think I will leave it here anyway.

Sometimes when people read my stories they assume those stories are me.  They are not me, even if I write in the first person.  They were my thoughts and feelings at the time I wrote them.  But every minute we are all changing.  There is a great freedom in this.  At any time we can let go of our old selves and start again.  This is the writing process.  Instead of blocking us, it gives us permission to move on.  Just like in a progressive ballroom dance:  you give your undivided attention to your partner—keep eye contact for the time you are dancing together—but then you move on to the next person in the circle.
