Process 05a – To Tell the Truth (by Greg Rucka)
Greg Rucka has been writing on the blog for his and Rick Burchett’s “Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether” webcomic…and he’s been writing some very interesting, and very quotable stuff. Today’s is about the concepts of “honesty” and “truth” in writing (and how they’re not necessarily the same thing sometimes).
Check out his previous posts…there have been some absolute quotable gems. He wrote the blogpost—last week?—Light in the Dark in which he said, amongst many other great lines,
“Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters.”
