← Your Brain on Fiction

debaser71's Avatar Jump to comment 19 by debaser71

I prefer reading about reality, not people's made up stories. "Fred grasped the stick" doesn't mean fiction...at least to me. Also, for me, writing is active, not reading. To me, reading is more like listening. So when I was in college, if I wanted a good grade in a class, I took notes. The act of writing things down, (not typing, but writing with my hand) sort of imprints the idea into my mind, pretty much forever.

The article sort of irked me. Carry on.
