How to Lose Friends in One Easy Step

How? you ask. Stephen King said it first: tell the truth. Many, perhaps, the majority of people don't like the truth, even when it's presented with kindness and grace. Often, the truth is too hard to look at, too hard to admit. It can be ugly and painful. It may hit too close to home. When you tell the truth, you will likely have more detractors than friends. As a writer, though, we have an obligation to do just that and let the chips fall where they may. We can't be afraid of who we'll offend. That doesn't mean we go around purposely stomping on toes, however, when it is right and for a purpose, the truth must be told without fear. To quote another well-known author named Mark Twain, "When in doubt, tell the truth."
