I read an article months ago, loved it, bookmarked it, and can’t for the life of me find it now, so if anyone knows what article I’m trying to reference, leave a link in the comments so I can put it in the original post, please!
The article was about how language changes our interpretation of a situation. I thought about it again because Ermisenda and I were writing a scene last night, and it didn’t quite feel right. It came down to the difference between “she’s my girlfriend” and “I’m the boyfriend.” While they technically say the same thing, the first sounds possessive where the second sounds like a position of honor. It reminded me of the article, which is when I went looking for it and couldn’t find it.
