Today will be a short posting.... sorry, I'm running behind with my edits and I still have to get a little writing done for my day job as well.
Today, my mind keeps turning around one of my favorite questions to play with when I am writing: what does it take for a person to choose a lie over reality? Now, I am one of those people who prefers to live my normal, everyday life based in what is to be believed as the truth. It's not always pretty, in fact, it's quite frequently uncomfortable, revolting, and disappointing. Of course, there are good days, too. But you face the truth and you deal with it as best you can.
My question is "how bad do things need to be for a person look at two choices, a. reality and b. a lie, and choose option 'b'?" Hmm... something to chew on. I've give you my thoughts in a couple days in the form of a short story.
And I mentioned a quiz, didn't I?
I found this on a pretty cool site and I will aim to post a quiz at least once every week. This site has lots and lots of quizzes -- many of which I don't want to know the answer to.
This quiz is great. It is the world's shortest personality test. It has only 1 question. That's right, just 1!!!!
Here is the link:
Now, when you take the test, go with you gut reaction. Don't think about it. Select the answer you react to. There were two choices that I could have gone with -- which probably says something about my own insanity -- but I went with my gut reaction and I liked the result.
I promise to post my result tomorrow. I don't want to sway anyone in any direction!
Come on, take the test. You know you want to now.
