Explain How Fiction Has Changed My Perspective Of Literacy

Good Essays
What do you believe the best genre is for literacy? Well, I believe that fiction is the one that interest me the most. Three reasons why I think fiction has changed my perspective in literacy is the creativity, my brother, and the Hunger Games series. People might not like fiction because people don’t like stories that are just too crazy such as like Star Wars (which everyone does like even though it’s fiction). Fiction is something that can just be really fun to read/write because of the realness or story being filled with so much adrenaline. Just let me tell you how fiction changed my views in reading and writing and how it can possible change your perspective.
In the article The Scholarship Boy and the author being Adam Lovell (1957) feels like the same as my main point in this. He talks about how mass media affected his life as he look at the newspaper. He wasn’t taught what was right or wrong but what

Fiction is a genre that just gets me motivated to read because the stories have so much action to it. It just wants me to keep reading it to find out what happens next. Also the amount of creativity the author uses is beyond the limit. When you are writing fiction, your imagination is sometimes testing your limits of what you can think of to put in your story. Your imagination is what makes the best fiction story. Another reason why I love fiction stories is that it takes place in it’s own planet and immerses you in it. Like I said before The Great Gatsby, was one definitely one of the books that made me feel like I was with them and it made it feel like this story could happen in a real life situation. I also feel like writing a fictional story can show your true self in a sense. It could express what you like in a story or just in general and when people read that, they can learn more about

    My past experiences with writing I would have agreed with the thought of writers have audiences. This is no longer true for me after reading Ong’s article “The Writer’s Audience Is Always a Fiction”. I was always told, writing to catch a specific audience attention is the key to having a successful piece. I now agree with Ong, the thought of an audience should be used for the writer’s advantage. The writer’s audience is always fiction no matter the situation.…

    Flash fiction makes you think more because you have to fit in so much without saying all of it directly. I also think flash has a more poetic feel to it then normal fiction, which I really enjoyed. Overall I really I loved writing flash fiction. I loved the poetic vibe it had and also the challenge of writing a new type of fiction. I think it really helped me break the pattern I was writing in.…

    When looking for books I mainly focus on the genres. I am a huge fan of romance novels because they take you somewhere new. Most romance novels are of things you know will never actually happen in real life but you dream of them anyway. To me what makes someones work great is being able to relate to it, if the work is so far out that its complete fallacy then it is hard for me to get into reading it. Being in a place that isn 't real can be nice but I prefer to be able to relate to the works on a person level.…

    Before every chapter the author includes snippets of laws or manuals from their world and history of how the government came to be. When reading a novel it is fun to imagine how one might act differently than the protagonist and having a deeper understanding of their universe makes reading more interesting, which is part of the reason I like reading science fiction so much. I would defiantly recommend the book to anyone who likes science fiction or popular fiction like The Hunger Games. Also if they have read either Uglies by Scott Westerfeld or The Giver by Lois Lowry and at least liked the concept of the book I think they would enjoy this novel too as the worlds are very similar in the ways that the characters…

    She describes each character and illustrates a whole fictional “world” that the reader actually starts believing in it. By making the reader so emotionally involved with the characters, an author is creating a way to get a message across without screaming or arguing. No one likes or fully listens to being yelled at. Which is why a novel, that they can read at their own leisure is more popular and effective than an angry argument for someone is. A story is an escape from real life which is very appealing.…

    This changed my view on things At first, when I started out on this project, it was under the assumption that reading fiction was completely good, based on my own experience. However, the scariest bit was when I read about how people change themselves to fit the personalities of characters they admire. A possible consequence may be the lowering of the borders between reality and fiction, resulting in a disjointed, possibly fractured world outlook, leading to irrational acts. This was something I enjoyed It was fun to do another piece of analysis on a topic that interested me and was relevant to my daily…

    In “Fences” it was used to make Troy’s emotions more vivid to the audience. In “Things They Carried” it was used to let O’Brian add to the emotional impact the audience would feel while reading his literature. Fiction plays a huge role in both of stories because it helps the audience capture something more than what was read. Fiction is the opposite of reality, something that did not happen. Being able to convince the audience that fiction is reality allows the author to convey a message that he might have only been able to express that way.…

    Sometimes in a suspenseful show they will cut to commercial right before the solution to the problem causing the viewer to stay and watch through the commercials, or in the book the boring parts, just to see the exciting conclusion. This style of writing makes a novel very fun to read and an all around better piece of…

    One of the reasons why all these magazines were accepting his work was just not for his interesting stories but on how easily his works can be read. “The technique in much of his works may be characterized as postmodern; rather than revering classical prose models, it instead uses choppy, vernacular sentences and deemphasizes traditional conventions of plot, theme, time, and character development…. His novels combine comedy with pathos, fantasy with history, and didacticism with farce” (Reed, n. page.). This lets readers get right into the story and move on quickly to the next book making Vonnegut a popular author.…

    Topic 3: Fiction’s essentiality to success and happiness Success and happiness are considered amongst the most important aspects in everyone’s life. Everyone strives to be successful in various ways, but the question here is that - is it necessarily achieved by reading Fiction stories or not? Well, this is something one could argue upon – in favor or against of reading fiction stories. I read a few fiction stories this semester including “What you pawn I will Redeem”, “The Lottery”, “The Swimmers”, “The UFO”, “ I‘m a Mad Dog Biting Myself for Sympathy” and came across few themes such as tradition, generosity, self-deception, homelessness, quest, love, society, etc. But in accordance to my thoughts and imagination it isn’t necessary…
