A burning question

February 20, 2023

I’ve been asking this question on Facebook and in my newsletter. I’d love to hear your response. Of course, there’s no right or wrong answer. Although it could be interesting if there’s a consensus.

Question: Why do you read fiction?

A. to learn something new

B. to have a vicarious experience

C. for entertainment

D. to escape/for distraction

And one of the delightful surprises of asking this has been the other options readers volunteered that I never even considered. So feel free to mention that in a comment as well.

Meanwhile, I’m pleased to announce that there’s a new episode of “Lady Blackwing Screws Up” on Kindle Vella. Unlock Episode 8 to read about “Rage and Retribution.”

    I like figuring out mysteries so I like fiction that challenges me to think. Of course, vicariously living comes in there too. 😉

      I hadn’t considered “mental challenge.” When I read or even watch mysteries, I rarely try to figure it out. I just go along for the ride.
