Liar ['lī-ər] (n):
1. A person who tells lies.
2. A writer.
“Lying is essential to good storytelling. Daily, we writers sit at our computers—or legal tablets or Underwoods—and write down a bunch of untruths, piling one on top of the other, page after paltering page. We compound them, massage them, edit them, spin them, cut-and-paste them, until we’re satisfied that, despite how outlandish or otherworldly these lies are, you, the reader, will swallow them.
“In that, we’re like politicians. Except that we’re spared the hassle of running for elected office.”—Sandra Brown
