One of my favorite quotes about fiction suggests that the former “explores topics which reality won’t even consider thinking about.”
Last Sunday, I wrote “Neglect,” a 128-words tale that I believe honors the spirit of the quote. Then my friend Gina shared an article on my Facebook wall, which reminded me that reality might avoid the discussion of certain difficult topics because the details it has to offer are often ghastlier than any fiction anyone can imagine.
If you haven’t read “Neglect,” please try doing so before reading the article. I wrote the story before knowing about the incident… And the connection between the two shook me. Seriously, my Wicked Luvs, this is a case where the direness within the fiction is almost mild when compared to the real life event.
