Intrigue, conflict, dramatic irony. Lies add spice to stories without any of the real-life consequences! What stories can we tell if we aren't so consumed with staying truthful? There's plenty to explore: what's worth lying about? What motivates our liar? What's at stake? Find out this week!

I'd love to hear your stories involving a lie, and the lying liars who tell them. The sky is the limit: fraudsters, actors, even self-delusion are all in bounds. I'll also accept lies to the reader, if the wider package is coherent.

You get 1500 words, if you ask for a flash, I'll give you a specific type of lie to work with, in exchange for 500 bonus words.
