It is my pleasure to participate in the AW October Blog Chain. The theme is: Masquerade.
Diane Dooley is not my real name, you know. I have to have a separate name/ identity from my professional name/identity. It’s true – I am living a masquerade.
Maybe it’s because I’m gutless, but it’s more likely that I just don’t want my co-workers to know exactly the depths to which I sink in my fiction. I mean, how could I get away with delivering a stern lecture to someone I supervise if they’re sitting there in full knowledge that I’ve written a cannibalization scene? It’s not something you really want to know about your supervisor, is it? That she thinks of such things?
Or how about trying to deliver a rousing address to the poor beleaguered workers while one of them is snickering in memory of one of those absolutely filthy sex scenes I wrote. Doesn’t quite work, does it?
How do I seriously advise someone on their problems when, just last night, I was gleefully obliterating half of humanity? How could they possibly consider me kind enough to care about their problems?
So I live a masquerade. Consummate professional by day; murderous slut by night. As long as I don’t get confused between my identities, I think it’ll work out OK.
