(noun) 1. a person who falsely pretends to know or be something in order to deceive people / 2. one making usually showy pretenses to knowledge or ability
A little showmanship can go a long way and get you opportunities that you might not have had otherwise. It can be impressive! It grabs the attention of those around you. But the folly lies in not being able to back up your claims -- when you can't walk the talk. Sometimes people can get away with such falsehoods with little or no consequences... but sometimes it blows up in their faces. Write a story where someone behaves like, or is caught being, a charlatan.
