I am a little an oddball among writers, since i don’t condemn the telly set. However, I do believe everyone, and also serious writers, should watch lots of TV, including TV comedies and dramas, for the reason that audio/visual format provides a perspective that you just can’t receive from reading the sunday paper. This flies facing the common rant, that TV is really a scourge that you should eliminated out of the entertainment landscape.
Conversely, the present trend is to watch more TV plus much more movies and focus less, when one reads, to read non-fiction as opposed to fiction. The causes given range between "Reading is hard" to "Novels are uninformative." But what most people don’t get is the written word, and fiction specifically, provides benefits you cannot receive other media. As an example:
Reading fiction may help you enhance your people skills. A 2008 study by Raymond Mar found out that individuals who read more fiction score higher on tests of empathy and social acumen, and that individuals who read more non-fiction score lower. This is perhaps because through fiction, you experience the characters’ social interactions and relationships in a way impossible with many non-fiction.
Reading fiction stimulates the imagination. While reading fiction, your brain reconstructs each scene in much more detail as opposed to author described it. It can so by visualizing the non-existent people and places of the story, often basing these visualizations on actual people and places used. This is actually the human power to imagine, to daydream, to speculate, to ponder. To be able to imagine separates us from other animals. It allows us to strategize, to plot, to reason, to find out, to create a better world than existed before.
Books be cheaper hour-for-hour of entertainment than movies or DVD’s. Specifically in tight economic times, it makes sense to foster the enjoyment of written fiction. For the same amount a 2-hour movie or DVD costs, you can get a book that will entertain you for several days, or weeks. Additionally, you can borrow it from your local library for free.
Reading relieves stress, and doesn’t overstimulate like TV can. Most contemporary television programming is made to capture your attention by constantly pinging your head with abrupt sounds and transitions. This gears your mind up and fosters stress. Research with the University of Sussex discovered that reading can help to eliminate levels of stress by up to 68 percent. Or as cognitive neuropsychologist Dr David Lewis place it, "Losing yourself within a book may be the ultimate relaxation."
Fiction allows us to get into the narrative, imagine ourselves there, in such a way that non-fiction can’t. Even a biography is already finished before you begin reading it, as it’s of a real person. Even if you do not know the precise good a certain biographical figure, biographies are seldom discussing losers, whereas the loser could be the staple of the fictional story. Or as you English teacher from Wichita, Kansas put it, "Fiction’s unknowability causes it to be a whole lot like Life once we feel it."
