A Better Map of the Bay Area

By CBramkamp Newbie Guide 1 Comment on A Better Map of the Bay Area

I love  this map and I love writing from the perspective of the unreliable narrator.

Instead of mapping a  factual, defensible  view of the world,  create a map of reality from a perspective that may or may not be accurate, but is certainly more entertaining.  If the narrator is throughly convinced of their story and their truth   (The Sound and Fury – Faulkner and Catcher in the Rye – Salinger as two famous examples)   the story will become captivating and often reveal more truth than if it stuck to the omnipotent truth.

So when you write, consider an unreliable narrator, someone who is flawed, has issues and doesn’t want to know the “real” truth, just their own.  It’s infinitely more fun.
