I only lie when I tell the truth.

I suspect truth is a meta-property of writing (or any other art). By which I mean that it arises (in a way that is related to intentionality, but not necessarily directly tied to it) as a property of the work as a whole, not due to, for example, a direct effect of specific, spelling, grammar, word choice or factuality of any given statements. As such, it is independent of categorizations like “fiction” or “prose”, and has more to do with things like “integrity.”

But I’m pretty sure that’s what you said. Just chiming in, here. …

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
