Fiction is all about getting lost


How many books do you stay with just because you want to see how the author will wrap all this up? You do not have a map, you do not have directions, you just stay with it and continue the journey. That is fun.That is getting lost but racing to the end anyway.

We elect to get lost in the novel’s world. We long for the simplicity of life with Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. We want to build another little house on the prairie. We crave just one more adventure on Disc World.

We read books to go there. A mystery set in Cambodia. A saga set in Naples.

Where do I want to go? When do I want to go? What era appeals on this dark night?

  1. I’ve read through a few times on books that were ‘poor’, hoping it would get better. Now I’m quicker to drop a book if it’s poorly written. Good job on the workshop last night. Thanks again. See you next week.
