Tell colorful, drawn-out stories that deflect attention from the fact that you aren’t actually sharing anything. Avoid specifics that will separate you from the crowd. Be vague about the year you graduated. Lie, but only when completely necessary.
Nellie needed to establish a protocol for hiding parts of her past: These are the rules she created for herself. Her familiarity with this kind of subterfuge ended up serving her well, and may have actually saved her life.

The compassion would be erased from her expression if she knew of my role in our demise.
It’s hard to say too much without spoiling bits of the plot, but Vanessa did play a key role in the demise of her marriage. Vanessa has huge regrets about a particular piece she feels responsible for, and in this passage, she clearly worries Aunt Charlotte will blame her for that specific action. It was essential to us that we never lie to our readers. However, upon an initial reading of this sentence, it might be interpreted in a way that isn’t entirely accurate - which was our intent. As the book unfolds, Vanessa’s surprising role in triggering the collapse of her marriage is revealed.

I wonder if she feels my stare. Gaze detection, it’s called—our ability to sense when someone is observing us. An entire system of the human brain is devoted to this genetic inheritance from our ancestors, who relied on the trait to avoid becoming an animal’s prey. I’ve cultivated this defense in myself, the sensation of static rising over my skin as my head instinctively lifts to search out a pair of eyes. I’ve learned the danger of dismissing that warning.
We both studied psychology in college, we both currently subscribe to Psychology Today, and we absolutely love to read about real-life psychological studies. This passage arose when we were discussing that eerie, tingle-between-the-shoulder-blades sensation of being watched. It happens to just about everyone at some point - who hasn’t looked up from scrolling through their phone on the subway to discover a stranger is staring? - and when we dug deeper into the research, we learned why. It has been so fun for us to discover that readers share our interest in learning about these universal ...more

"This title caught my attention several months ago, and I knew it was one book I really wanted to read, having been raised by a mother who was emotionally detached, and often verbally abusive.

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

William Shakespeare
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”
Arthur Schopenhauer

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
