Letting the story out

Read this article in Medium today, with the title “Your stories are safe”.  But it’s really more about the need to share our stories. It occurred to me that writing fantasy, and fiction in general, is a way of sharing a story that’s too personal to tell in it’s truest form.  Fiction is a vehicle for piecing together lived events and presenting them to others in a way that’s easier to accept.

This isn’t real, it’s just a story.  Pretty clever, in my opinion.
