Telling secrets

I’ve got a new story percolating. I’m not yet dedicating lots of time to it, but this week, my characters have been whispering to me their secrets. Today, the shaman told me a whopper.

They say an amazing number of criminals are caught after the fact, not due to a trail of damning evidence, but because they told someone what they’d done. Perhaps we’re not built to hold our secrets indefinitely. Perhaps we can’t.
