qotd: There’s No Such Thing As Nonfiction

My feeling is that theres no such thing as nonfiction. Everything is fiction, because in the moment someone tries to relate an experience of what happened to them, its gone. The reality that was felt at the moment is almost impossible to describe. Its one reason why there are writers, to come close to how it felt when it happened.
