Keeping It Real (week of 27 January 2013)

If you’ve been around the Cafe, you know that we like to tell stories. Here’s a bit from the Wikipedia entry on ‘confabulation’:

Confabulation is considered “honest lying,” but is distinct from lying because there is typically no intent to deceive and the individual is unaware that their information is false.

So you can see we stretched it a bit, by definition. The Cafe is not any of the regulars’ primary job, though. All of us have square jobs we work at that pay the bills. Some of us work in various fields where we write for a living, but the work is such that the truth must be told accurately and within certain (sometimes frustrating) parameters.

Our special this week is to challenge the regulars to tell you what sort of non-fiction each would write if given the chance. The answers may surprise you given what we write in terms of fiction. Don’t expect a confessional, but you may be enlightened as to what interests us outside of what you may already know. Or think you know. There’s no ‘honest lying’ here this week.

Your table’s ready. Cocoa, tea, and coffee on request as long as you serve yourself.

Cafe Management is run by the administration of The Confabulator Cafe. We keep things running smoothly, post stories by guest authors, and manage other boring back-end tasks.
