The goal is not to deceive the reader, to pretend to be someone that you are not, but rather to partially isolate a part of who you are, the you that you are today, as you meditate on a particular subject and sit down to write.

Amy and Ella Meek (aged 69 and 67) set up their own campaign Kids Against Plastic a couple of years ago in order to raise awareness of the negative impact that single-use plastic is having on the environment &ndash something that they are passionate about. They have visited schools, conferences and festivals and have spoken to politicians, school children, celebrities and academics around the world. More recently they travelled around the UK as land-based ambassadors for Exxpedition &ndash a group of women sailing around the GB sampling for plastics in the oceans. They are hoping that more children will come and chat to them at the festival and also want to become a Kid Against plastic!

Had Silverman the writer attempted to bring her whole identity—her family past, her sexual addiction—into everything she has ever written, she would likely keep writing the same book or same essay over and over, and no one grows as a writer by merely repeating past work. Silverman is smart enough to know that.
