Fiction is a very popular genre in books. It is very common to see fiction books and novels in book stores around the world. Even here in India, fiction books invoke a lot of interest and have a deep and passionate following. Novels form the core of fiction books and be it any genre, say thrillers, adventure, romance, comedy, or others, they give the readers the ultimate chance to enhance their imaginative skills.
Writing and Imagination
Writing needs a lot of imagination and those who are into the writing industry know that their fiction needs to be without blemish. Hence the plots are woven into complex subplots and themes that unwind into a climax and which finally leads to a suitable ending. The market is abuzz with top fiction writers such as Sydney Sheldon, John Grisham, Agatha Christie, Paul Coehlo, Dan Brown and many others. Only recently, the hit Harry Potter Series by author J. K. Rowling has proved that good fiction with limitless imagination indeed sells. Fiction is one variety where there is no limit to imagination.
Fiction Authors: the God of their characters
Characters live and die in the author’s mind. Just as we have one God above all of us, the God of the characters is the author himself. The author introduces the characters in the plot, removes them at specific times, and reintroduces them again. He may make the characters live till the very end of the story, or kill them off as he or she desires. In this way, readers can also take their imagination to new heights. Most readers avidly follow plot and theme lines thus admiring the writer’s prowess and skills or criticizing weaknesses in the plot or story construction.
How about Residing in the author’s mind?
Fiction is something that is born in the author’s mind. The author takes full credit for the fiction that flows out of his or her mind and forms words from the pen onto the paper. The ultimate product is the fiction which then is the final marketable product in the books market. Buying one of the fiction books and reading it can be fun if the final product is really a good one. Besides increasing imaginative skills, many readers also find they increase their inspirational skills too, since they feel inspired to write a novel or a piece of fiction themselves.
Onto Newer Worlds
Therefore, once a reader has read enough fiction, he or she feels inspired to write a piece of fiction himself or herself and try out and see if what they turn out is as imaginative as the original piece himself. Therefore, fiction books not only help us to appreciate great fiction of contemporary authors today, but also act to inspire us to greater heights of inspiration and literary prowess.
