I always thought that fiction came from life until I started living. Fiction is as remote from life as is Jupiter. Being someone who first knew fiction rather than life relearning the rules and tenets of life is quite troublesome. I feel most alive when watching a movie. My love for story books has begun to fade and lose its charm. Books are great for those who want to live in a quiet corner inside their head. For those who want to participate in life while being subjected to storytelling should watch a movie. It takes lesser time and you can step in and out of the world at your will.
Books on the other hand tend to stay and linger like a rejected lover clinging on till the last dregs of the relationship. Times have changed and new media is here to stay and experiment with and interpret.
