I defend entertaining stories… and write them too.
Here I strip away the pretensions and argue for the basics–an entertaining story. Let’s take a closer look at what’s often dismissed as ‘escapist’ or unrealistic, and dig to find what the elements of a good story really are.
Readers, here’s your place to discuss books that actually entertain you, pick them apart and discover what makes stories tick for you. Writers–you are readers too, of course, so take what readers love and weave it into your books. The result can only be more great fiction, and who can argue with that?
Oh yes, and do feel free to quibble with my opinions. Reasoned debate is one of the great joys of life.
