Someone close to me once remarked, "I didn't realize that you read so much fiction."
I've mulled over those words for quite some time now. I'm still not sure how to take them.
But sometimes I think that we devalue good stories for the mere fact that they're fictional. Sometimes it's easier for me to learn lessons when it's in a different setting. Sometimes "Fairy tales" teach me things that I fail to learn from other books. They inspire me in ways real-life struggles to do so.
Perhaps I'm strange. But, if you've found this blog, you might also be in the same strange category.
So, here's to fairy tales, sci-fi, and all those other wonderful genres that inspire us in a completely made-up world.
Why do you think fictional stories are important?
