Daily Prompt: When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?
Definitely, without a doubt, fiction. Choosing an imaginary world where anything could happen, where you can choose who the characters are and whether you like them or not is just such an inspiring thing. No story is the same either – you get a different beginning, middle and end each time which is more than can be said for the news nowadays. Yes, I do believe it’s important to read some non-fiction material, (I actually really like reading travel articles), but when it’s the same depressing headlines or celebrity ‘scandals’ each week, it’s nice to escape into something fictional.
