I am a little an oddball among writers, since i don’t condemn the television set. To the contrary, I think everyone, and particularly serious writers, should watch a lot of TV, including TV comedies and dramas, because the audio/visual format gives a perspective that you can’t get from reading a manuscript. This flies facing the common rant, that TV is really a scourge that you should eliminated from the entertainment landscape.
On the other hand, the recent trend has been to watch more TV plus more movies and browse less, then when one reads, you just read non-fiction instead of fiction. The issues given range between "Reading is hard" to "Novels are uninformative." But what most people don’t understand is the written word, and fiction particularly, provides benefits you can’t get from other media. For instance:
Reading fiction can help you enhance your manners. A 2008 study by Raymond Mar found that those who continue reading fiction score higher on tests of empathy and social acumen, and that people who find out more non-fiction score lower. Be considered because through fiction, you go through the characters’ social interactions and relationships you might say impossible with a lot of non-fiction.
Reading fiction stimulates the imagination. While reading fiction, your brain reconstructs each scene in considerably more detail as opposed to author described it. It will so by visualizing the non-existent people and places in the story, often basing these visualizations on actual people and places used. This is actually the human capacity to imagine, to daydream, to invest, to ponder. The ability to imagine separates us business animals. It helps us to strategize, to organise, to reason, to master, to create a better world than existed before.
Books are cheaper hour-for-hour of entertainment than movies or DVD’s. Specifically in tight economic times, it feels right to foster the thrill of written fiction. For the same amount a 2-hour movie or DVD costs, you can get a book which will entertain you for several days, or weeks. You can also borrow it from a local library free of charge.
Reading relieves stress, and overstimulate like TV can. Modern television programming is designed to capture your attention by constantly pinging your head with abrupt sounds and transitions. This gears your brain up and helps to create stress. Research with the University of Sussex found that reading can reduce stress levels by as much as 68 percent. Or as cognitive neuropsychologist Dr David Lewis place it, "Losing yourself in a book will be the ultimate relaxation."
Fiction allows us access the narrative, imagine ourselves there, in ways that non-fiction can’t. Even a biography is definitely finished before you start reading it, because it’s about a real person. Even though you have no idea of the specific reputation a particular biographical figure, biographies are seldom discussed losers, whereas the loser will be the staple of the fictional story. Or as you English teacher from Wichita, Kansas use it, "Fiction’s unknowability can make it a great deal like Life even as we experience it."
