What lies do you believe? This question was asked in a Susan Mae Warren writers' workshop I recently attended. We all have lies in our lives that color our behavior and how we perceive ourselves and our world.
My character in "The Christmas Child" believed he was unredeemable. In the yet untitled book I just finished, coming next July, Haley believes, "People you love always leave." Common, but equally troubling lies include, "I'm ugly, I not smart, No one likes me."
I'm digging deep into my characters today looking for their inner "lies" . So I pose to you: What lies about yourself do you believe? Or if that's too personal, What lies do you see in others that they believe?
