The Imaginary Self

June 30, 2012 at 10:23 am (Articles by other bloggers)

Here‘s an article by John Scalzi about the odd experience of being famous. Any published writer is, a little bit, public property (ditto any parent of a baby).

“I think she’s essentially correct when she notes that the fictional version people have of you in their heads in more about them than it is about you; everything gets filtered through their brain and how people fill in the blanks is by sticking in bits based on their own experiences, sometimes from others but mostly from themselves.”

    That’s a little scary to think that a person is ultimately open to interpretation by the public when they have a bit of fame to their name. That could get bloody scary! But it’s absolutely true.

    Hi by the way, long time no see! 🙂

      Terrifying, yes. And hi 🙂
