Blogging Challenge L(ies)
Are lies a social lubricant that smooth our interactions, or are they slowly tearing away at another social lubricant--trust? As a very little girl, I was an almost compulsive liar, and it took many years of being completely honest to gain my parents' trust. As a result, I'm ruthlessly honest now. Or silent if I can't think of a creative way to get around awkward social moments.
Do your characters lie? What do you think is a good reason for people to lie? Or do you think there never is a good reason to lie?
