See, it's not just that fiction is easier to write than nonfiction. Writing it down is easier than speaking it. The writing lets me distance myself. The hand moving across the page is further away from the heart of me than the air in my throat, struggling to form words. If you read this, and then we meet some day, you will know these things about me, these things that I have written, that I have told you. Probably I'll be embarrassed, but it will be an embarrassment I can live with. It will be so much easier than having said the words out loud.
My name is Tarianna. I have a tendency to be a very private person, so things like this can be difficult for me. It's not that I don't like talking about myself - everyone is a little bit narcissistic, and I'm no exception - but I have a very serious condition called "Terminus Boremus". That's garbled-Latin for "though others seem to find me an interesting character, I'm really quite fucking boring". Like most mammals, I have a wide range of interests. I knit, I read, I bake, I garden, I sing, I write, I game, I skate, and I dream.
