What is the danger of the narrations we make?

NOVEL: A CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED SENTENCE

“The dream reveals the reality, which conception lags behind. That is the horror of life—the terror of art.” -Franz Kafka  
                                             
What is the danger of the narrations we make? 
What are the implications of not being aware of those narratives?

Unconsciously we exist in a circle—we live our whole lives inside that circle. Writing is a  journey, an action of understanding what we circle—and in this work my intention is to look closely at how I narrate my life.

The story is about a woman on the cusp of leaving her husband who becomes consumed by the idea of a Japanese lover. An idea that dangerously pierces the fabric of her reality.

The world constructed—exists in the space where desire dangerously merges with memory, fantasy, dream and reality. The narrator is a participant and the architect. Sometimes she is immersed in the experience and other times she walks into the control room where all the realities are simply buttons to be pushed.

How do we narrate our lives? How can we dissect this narration? I start from the point of a married woman, an artist, a daughter, a mother, a lover. I want to think about how language reflects our culture and  our thinking. How our identity is wrapped inside language?
