"As far as I'm concerned, the only difference between fact and what most people call fiction is about fifteen pages in the dictionary." - Charles de Lint.

Did you know that the words "figment", "fiction" and "feign" are all related? The link between them is the Latin verb fingere, which means "to fashion" or "to mould". "Fact", like "fiction", also derives from a Latin word, but in this case it's factum, which means an action or event, among other possibilities. Of course, the same words are used to recount a real-life event, or fact, as to concoct an imaginary, or fictional, event. Attempting to capture the truth of an event in language is a difficult business, a translation from deeds to words.
